JOHN DAY - Due to interest shown locally for a USDA inspected mobile meat processing unit, an informational meeting will be held 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5, at the Outpost Restaurant, 201 W. Main St.

The meeting is directed toward livestock producers interested in alternative markets for their animals. Dr. Robert Dickson, professor at the Oregon State University Meats Lab, will discuss the needs and issues associated with a mobile processing unit. Dickson has been through the process with the unit now being operated in Washington State.
