UW-Extension Assisting In Keeping Meat Supplies Going


As the state's farmers continue to reel after the closures of Wisconsin's largest meat packing companies, efforts are being made to keep their livestock in the food supply. UW-Extension Meat Specialist Jeffrey Sindelar says groups are looking for buyers for all of those animals that would have gone to the major meat packing companies.


"Every animal that is born and raised for food production, if it's not being utilized for food production it's a waste. And that waste is something that is really driving all the people that are trying to find ways to not waste those animals."


Sindelar says that the UW is even stepping up at its own processing facilities to try and handle the surplus.
