A group of Southwest Wisconsin poultry producers is exploring the feasibility of locating a USDA poultry processing facility in Southwest Wisconsin. They define poultry loosely to include chickens, turkeys, waterfowl, guinea hens, and rabbits. Now they are working on assessing the potential demand for such a facility. They have developed a survey for farmers in southwestern Wisconsin, northeastern Iowa, and northern Illinois to figure out if and how they might use such a processing plant.
The deadline to fill out the survey is November 30th. Farmers can fill the survey out on-line or print out a paper survey and mail it in. Below are links to the electronic survey, to a press release with more information about the project, and to the paper survey.
