Northern Beef Packers can now process an unlimited number of cattle after getting its permanent certificate of occupancy from the city of Aberdeen.
The city previously had restricted the plant in northeastern South Dakota to processing 125 head of cattle a day because of delays in the installation of wastewater equipment.
The plant received a permit last week that lifted any production restrictions.
Aberdeen Building Inspector Chad Nilson says some issues remain with wastewater operations. But he says those issues will be handled through enforcement of a wastewater permit, not through building inspection.
Nilson says inspections at the plant will continue as it increases production and adjusts equipment.
The plant is expected to process 1,500 head of cattle a day when it's fully operational.
