This was one of the highlights of our trip. Great free tour of the plant. Nice litter interpretive center. They open early so a great way to start the day, before heading into the stockyards.

We loved this tour! And the price is right- free! Be aware- leave phones and cameras in the car. Not allowed. Free parking. You get a brief movie on making the money, a self guided tour of the printing presses from a cat walk view--with...More
