Co-Op Owned and Operated Processing – Cattle Producers of Washington and the LPCA Plant


Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network webinar

Date: Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Duration: one hour



Livestock producer co-ops are often interested in owning and operating their own processing plants.  On this webinar, we heard the story of one co-op, Cattle Producers of Washington, and their journey to build and operate their own plant, the CPoW LPCA Plant in Odessa, WA.  We learned how they got started, how they financed the plant, and heard about the build-out process.  We also talked about the LPCA’s first few years of operation: successes, challenges, and surprises along the way.

Speakers: Sue-Lani Madsen, CPoW
