On April 25, at 7 pm at the Halifax County Agricultural Center, Dr. Dahlia O’Brien, of VSU will discuss with us the mobile processing unit that will be available to us later this year. This unit is set up for small ruminant processing and will be run by a butcher, whom VSU will hire. Under discussion: the time of year it could best serve Southern VA producers, cost per animal, how many animals would make it feasible to bring it down here, and other details.
Your input is critical and valued on how we can use this new asset. As always, this meeting is open to all producers (not just members), so please mark your calendars and spread the word.
