How to handle when processor does not have a scale to live weigh.
Kathy Webster she/her
53:56
What Holly and Sunnyside are doing is really amazing! What software are you all using at Sunnyside? I love that you do a hot carcass weight and a weight post aging.
Wendy Johnson
55:09
I agree with Kathy. This should be suggested at state processors network meetings.
Lucas
56:35
Are state processor networking meeting open to producers?
Shannon Maes (she/her)
56:46
Lauri, could you get together with some of your neighbors and buy one collectively? I wonder if there are an existing set of best practices for groups that may want to do that?
Lauri Celella
57:56
Shannon, they have one there that is broken, that’s a good idea. Maybe we could pay to get it repaired.
Shannon Maes (she/her)
01:00:09
Good thinking! Maybe it could be like an advance on the payment you all would already make to the processor before your next drop off. Seems like a lot would depend on the relationship you have with them.
Shannon Maes (she/her)
01:08:07
So cool!
Wendy Johnson
01:09:11
Is it appropriate to ask the processor the contact information of other producers to start a campaign for a capital purchase?
Lauri Celella
01:11:03
Is it standard for processor to put weights on my individual cuts on my labels? I am currently paying $20 per lamb to have my custom labels to be used.
Lucas
01:14:44
We are selling that way. Did one cow last year. Gearing up to do it again this year
Kathy Webster she/her

There is a new resource coming out this week for customers who purchase direct to ranch/farm—The Good Meat Breakdown. This resource/website is designed to help the customer and the farmer with education—how to find, buy, and cook meat (and more).
Wendy Johnson
01:28:45
What is the process that processors go through when creating a new label and new recipe for a product? Is it too much to ask a processor to do?
Wendy Johnson
01:33:59
This is very insightful info, thank you. This really helps with empathy here
Lauri Celella

Wendy Johnson

Kathy Webster she/her
