    Made a posting of processors by state and I can't find it [​IMG] Please Help!

    I seen the PDF file from the USDA that someone posted but those are all big time processors like Tyson and so on. I would like to get meat birds but there is nooooo way hubby will help process them so I was hoping to find someone near me who would.

    Thanks for your help [​IMG]

    Poultry Processors
    There is only one packing plant in Kansas that will
    custom-process small flocks of companies under state
    inspection. If you have or will have birds to process,
    you should contact them well in advance to make reservations
    to have your birds processed. Other plants
    may process poultry, however, since they are not state
    inspected, this processing is done on a custom basis.

    Just because a poultry processing facility is not USDA inspected does not mean that your can't use them. There are several exceptions the USDA has depending on the intended final consumer, and the source of the poultry.

    usda guide Poultry_Slaughter_Exemption_0406.pdf list the criteria for USDA inspection. Many states have there own critria so you need to check your local AG resources

    Thank you everyone for your replies. I have been trying to find a processor near me but have been unsuccessful [​IMG]

    I would really like to get meat birds but it doesn't look like it's gonna happen anytime soon.

    thanks again for all your help.
