New slaughterhouse to keep cows calm.

“It’s important for the animals to be calm,” said the owner of Les Viandes Laroche, a small meat-making firm in the town of Asbestos, smack dab in the middle of a rural triangle cornered by Sherbrooke, Drummondville and Victoriaville.

The company is building an $11-million slaughterhouse near its processing plant in Asbestos.

Notably, the new slaughterhouse will feature big windows and classical music in the penned areas, where up to 700 cattle a week will arrive on trucks and await processing, starting in May.
