Animal protection advocates applauded the president for proposing to continue a federal funding ban that’s blocked the resumption of commercial horse slaughter here in the U.S.
Blair Dunn, the attorney for the Valley Meat Co. here in Roswell but located in Chaves County, said the president’s budget is not law and certainly not the end of the story.
