    Hello all,

    I'm considering slowly raising the volume of meat birds I raise. I'm aware of the 1000 and 20,000 bird limits, but I am a little concerned with the difference between the two. I am a little confused about the "sanitiation" stipulations in the federal law with regard to processing.

    I'm in Minnesota, and as far as I can tell, I would be able to raise over 1000 birds on pasture, assuming I meet the requirements of the 20,000 bird level.....

    Hopefully this doesn't sound too confusing, but I am a little confused about the federal requirements...[​IMG]

    Considering I only raised 2 meatbirds this year, I don't think I can be of much help. [​IMG]

    MERRY LAND
    Most on here deal with 25 or so at a time, so the 1000/20,000 may not get a whole lot of looks on this board.
