The University of Missouri’s Division of Animal Sciences will soon launch a pair of trailers aimed at training meat processors how to prepare, package and sell their cuts. Teagan Schnurbusch recently gave Regional Radio a tour of the school’s processing trailer.
Schnurbusch says the processing trailer, along with a storefront trailer, seek to address a critical need in the meat supply chain.
Teagan Schnurbusch of the University of Missouri’s Division of Animal Sciences says plans are still in development as to how processors and other schools can set up times for the trailers to stop and provide training. The trailers were funded with a grant from the Missouri Department of Agriculture.
