Good question.

What do slaughterhouses normally do with all that blood? I think of all the diseases that could be flowing down that river, not to mention the ick factor.

Also, chicken manure is a very common product that's processed and bagged for home gardening use. They won't tell you what it is on the bag. It does have a very distinct telltale odor that the trained nose...knows. Happy

Blood meal...

Diana, they sell it for a fertilizer called "blood meal". It's a great source of nitrogen and a lot of organic growers like it. Also, sometimes it's used as a deterrent to deer, they seem to avoid it. You can find it for sale in most gardening centers.

There appears to be a man made ridge between a small grove of trees and a shallow area. There is a thin red streak on the outside of the earthen ridge. It's not all that well defined.

Perfect example....

.....of why repealing environmental laws and/or dissolving the EPA and expecting everyone to behave themselves on the honor system is not a good idea. Under those conditions what this plant is doing would be legal.

I see

what appears to be some sort of business area. I then see a lot of green area. Across the green area from the plant I see an old sinkhole or excavation area. Where is this river of blood flowing from the packing house across that green area?
