— Koch Industries announced Thursday that it will open a “catzabeel” farm in the Sunshine State, the first of its kind.
The company said it plans to raise chickens for meat and dairy products, and also raise goats for milk.
The Catzabel will be a 10,000-acre facility with about 4,000 acres of land, where it plans on making its first animals by 2019.
“Catzabel” is an acronym for “Cat’s Back,” a slogan of the Animal Welfare Institute, a national animal rights organization.
The organization launched its campaign to get cats to leave their pen to find a new home in the 1990s.
The first Catzabelles were made in the 1960s, and Koch Industries said it would bring the first to market later this year.
The farm is expected to produce about 6,000 to 7,000 animals a year, with about half of those coming from the company’s chicken-producing facility in South Dakota.
