Ginormous, stanky pork producer PSF settles with Missouri’s AG

This week, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster announced that his office has reached a settlement with Smithfield Foods and Premium Standard Farms (PSF), the nation’s largest pork producers whose 11 massive, confined animal feeding operations in Northwest Missouri have tormented their neighbors and polluted state waters with pig shit.

Back in March, the company was slapped with a $11 million judgment to be paid to 15 family farmers living near PSF’s Homann hog facility in Gentry County. A jury agreed that the odors coming from Homann hurt the plaintiffs’ quality of life.
