Mobile Slaughter Units: Reports from the Field and Future Directions

Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network webinar

Date: September 10, 2013

Duration: 90 minutes


Inspected mobile slaughter units for beef, bison, and other red meat species have been operating for more than a decade. How are they working out? What have we learned? And how might the next generation of MSUs be different?

On this webinar, we heard from seasoned MSU pioneers — from New Mexico, South Dakota, and Colorado — about their experiences, lessons learned, and ideas for the future.
