Among the recent results, Canadian farmers who were owed money when the company sought bankruptcy protection have demonstrated outside Big Sky operations. They are seeking repayment from the government, if not the company; meanwhile, the provincial government has referred all inquiries to the courts, according to Canadian media reports.
One concern is if the government doesn't make good on money owed to growers in the region, more bankruptcies will follow.
The case has headed into the United States where Big Sky Farms' has assets in Iowa amounting to 53,000 wean-to-finish and finishing pigs being raised on contract farms in the state. There also a processing facility in Sioux Center, Iowa.
