A state-approved Mobile Processing Unit for small livestock, poultry, and aquaculture species is available for rent through KSU. The MPU is 20-foot long and 8-foot wide gooseneck cargo trailer with an enclosed aluminum shell. It is air-conditioned and fully equipped for slaughtering any kind of poultry. It is also approved for processing fresh water prawns, fin fish, caviar, and paddlefish. The MPU has a docking station designed to be parked beside a concrete pad where the killing, scalding and plucking can be done in the docking station. The evisceration and cleaning of the carcasses are done inside the MPU. The renter of the MPU must provide all of the labor; therefore the number of birds which can be butchered in one day depends on the skill and speed of the workers. The MPUís equipment should be able to handle 400 birds per day. The MPU was designed in consultation with state and federal officials, and it was first available for use in 2001. It is federally exempt for up to 20,000 birds per individual user. It is also state approved by the KY Cabinet for Health Services. Birds processed in this MPU may be legally sold anywhere in KY. Currently the state approval applies to whole birds; cut-ups are allowed, and hear and livers may be kept. Persons who want to use the MP must first complete a one day training session to learn how to set up and operate it. This training session costs $75.00 per person. Person who successful complete this training are eligible to use the MPU for the next 2 years. Retraining is required annually (at a cost of $50.00 per person). A user agreement must be signed each time the MPU is rented. Person qualified to do halal or kosher processing could do that in this MPU as long as they have also completed the MPU operator training. Moving the MPU requires at least a ĺ ton truck with a gooseneck ball and electrical connection for the trailer lights and brakes. It must be used at an approved location (beside a concrete pad with electric and potable water supply, waste water disposal through an approved sewer, and an approved composting systems or other method of solid waste disposal). Operating cost is $75.00 for first 50 chicken and 75 cents for every chicken after. Turkeys are $75.00 for the first 5 and $3.50 for every turkey after. The MPU also has a vacuum packer. The producer must furnish their own bags or purchase them from us at our cost. The vacuum packer may or may be able to vacuum the turkeys depending on size. The MPU operates on a 7.50 hour day. Anything over the 7.5 hour is $10.00 per hour.
