Educational and Technical Opportunities for Meat Processing and Slaughter (Webinar Wednesday)

The Covid pandemic put the spotlight on small meat processing and slaughter operations that bridge the gap between the local farmer and consumer. Training options for butchers has also declined while the existing skilled workers are aging out of the industry.

This video from the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute includes experts from Ridgewater and Central Lakes Colleges who share information about new educational and technical opportunities for meat processing and slaughter. AURI also shares information about a mobile meat slaughtering grant opportunity it will be administering for the State of Minnesota.
