Overview:

The goal? Improve the quality and quantity of processing services available to the state's livestock producers and to enhance the economic viability of both producers and processors. 

On this webinar, NC Choices and two processors who participated in the project will tell us how they did it, what they accomplished, and why it matters. Speakers include:
