SAN ANTONIO - L&H Packing Co., which opened its doors in 1963, is closing up shop. The South San Antonio beef processing plant, located on Steves Ave. near US 90, is ceasing operations after drought conditions and other factors have significantly shrunk the size of the U.S. cattle population.
The shutdown will impact approximately 325 L&H workers. Company officials are working to place 74 to 100 of those workers with Surlean Foods or New Earth Soils and Compost — sister companies owned by L&H Packing’s parent company, L&H Holding.
More of the affected workers could be placed with the companies over the next several months.
