Processing a patty

This afternoon the Young Cattlemen’s Conference toured OSI in West Chicago.

The company, founded by German immigrants, was first a local butcher shop. But when Ray Kroc, joined McDonald’s the company started supplying the hamburger chain with its hamburgers.

Today, 85 percent of McDonald’s U.S. restaurants will have at least one protein item that was supplied by OSI. They are McDonald’s largest protein supplier.

Again, no photos were allowed in the plant but I did get this one of us styling in our hard hats, hairnets and smocks.

We watched them making regular hamburger patties, as well as quarter-pounds patties. This facility, one of the 13 OSI facilities in the United States, can produce up to 6 million patties per day. Now that’s a lot of cheeseburgers.
