Building the Capacity of Small Meat Processors: Successes and Lessons from North Carolina
A Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network webinar.
Date: January 7, 2015
Time: 10am PST / 1pm EST
Duration: one hour
To attend: Go to https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/nichemeat 5-10 minutes before start time and log in as a guest.

All NMPAN webinars are free and open to the public.
Overview:
Local meat and poultry markets rely on small processors with a range of skills and services. NC Choices, an initiative of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at North Carolina State University, spent two years working with a set of small processors in North Carolina, providing a range of technical assistance and support. The goal? Improve the quality and quantity of processing services available to the state’s livestock producers and to enhance the economic viability of both producers and processors.
On this webinar, NC Choices and three processors who participated in the project will tell us how they did it, what they accomplished, and why it matters. Speakers include:
Sarah Blacklin and Casey McKissick, NC Choices
Ann Rose, Rose Mountain Butcher Shoppe
Richard Huettman, Acre Station Meat Farm
Amanda Carter, Foothills Pilot Plant
You can download the final “NC Choices Technical Assistance Training Manual” here.
Join us for a lively discussion about successes and challenges in technical assistance projects!
