About Us

In January of 2015, CS Beef Packers, LLC was formed as a partnership between Caviness Beef Packers and the JR Simplot Company.


Caviness Beef Packers has been family owned and operated for over “60 Years” and is currently led by 2nd and 3rd generation family members. Since 1962, Caviness has remained one of the most relationship oriented companies in the beef processing industry. The business has grown from harvesting a handful of cattle, in the early days, to 1700 head processed each day. Today, the company operates two beef processing locations and markets products worldwide.


The J.R. Simplot Company was started by an energetic entrepreneur in 1929, and grew from a one-man farming operation into a food and agribusiness empire.

The Company’s vertical integration – seed production, farming, ranching, cattle feeding, fertilizer manufacturing, frozen-food processing, and food brands and distribution – has nurtured a diverse array of internal talents and resources, creating a symbiosis that few other organizations achieve.

The pillars of our organization – Passion for People, Spirit of Innovation, and Respect for Resources – are as relevant now as they were when young Jack Simplot began his long journey toward remarkable success.

In May of 2017, CS Beef completed construction and commenced operations on the most modern, state of the art, green-field beef plant built to date. The new meat packing plant features the highest quality construction with the latest design and equipment to ensure the highest food safety and animal care possible. We look forward to continually growing meaningful relationships with cattle producers, dairy operators and beef customers in the Western U.S.  We are located in the Heart of the Inter Mountain Region, just 9 miles south of Kuna, ID at the Cole Rd and Kuna Mora Rd intersection.
