In this episode, Margo Hale, NCAT’s Southeast Regional Director, has a conversation with farmer Terrell “Spence” Spencer about his poultry-processing facility.
Margo is a livestock specialist with NCAT’s ATTRA sustainable-agriculture program at NCAT’s Southeast office in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Spence is a pastured-poultry producer in northwest Arkansas, raising nearly 12,000 broilers on pasture each year. He shares the challenges he has faced in regard to finding a reliable processor for his chickens and how that led to him opening a poultry-processing facility.
