Small Farmers Turn To Mobile Livestock Slaughter
Skelton said the mobile facilities are cleaner than slaughtering done in the open at farms.
"I've been to some of those places and I don't think I'd want to feed my dog some of that stuff," he said.
Bruce Dunlop, the president of Lopez Island Farm in Washington state, first used a mobile slaughterhouse in 2001. He uses it to slaughter his cows, goat, sheep and pigs and sells models to other farmers. People who might object to having a permanent slaughterhouse in their neighborhood are less likely to object to mobile processing.
"There's very minimal impact for the neighbors next door," Dunlop said. "They're fine with that."___ Follow Ray Henry on Twitter: http://twitter.com/rhenryAP
