Small-Scale Poultry Processing
A Southwest Wisconsin Pastured Poultry Processing Working Group has formed to explore the possibility of launching a regional USDA-inspected poultry-processing plant, reports Agri-View. Producers in the group are interested in finding affordable, nearby processing options for poultry, as well as waterfowl and rabbits. A USDA-inspected facility makes interstate and retail sales possible. Producers are also interested in value-added products. The group plans to apply for a USDA Value-Added Grant to aid in an assessment of regional processing demand, availability and costs.
