Angela Blatt, Paul Dorrance & Rachel Tayse
Recorded live at the 2021 Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show in Covington, Kentucky, Dec. 6-9, 2021.
Demand for local meat continues to grow, but bottlenecks in the processing chain inhibit market opportunities for livestock farmers across the country. Innovative ideas are required to address these issues, which could include mobile processing. However, state-level regulatory inconsistencies sometimes stand in the way of progress, and mobile may not represent the “silver bullet” solution.
Learn about what works, what doesn’t, lessons learned, needed policy changes gleaned from a recent needs assessment survey in Ohio and Central Appalachia and site visits to both the oldest and newest mobile slaughter facilities in the country. Add your voice to this critical conversation and evaluate if mobile processing is the solution that is right for you!
