WAMMCO International has assured producers once again the sale of Linley Valley abattoir will not result in any additional cost burden.
General manager Des Griffiths said the sale would not alter cost arrangements made at the time of the closure of Linley valley in December last year.
He said WAMMCO had worn any added costs related to transporting stock to the Katanning plant and this would not change.
Mr Griffiths said farmers were "actually getting a better deal" by sending stock to Katanning because it halved WAMMCO's running costs, in turn allowing them to reduce premiums to growers.
"There is not enough stock to split the kill between two facilities, so we would just be doubling our running costs with no extra production if we held onto Linley Valley," Mr Griffiths said.
