Safe Poultry Processing Webinar

Join the Missouri Beginning Farmers Program's monthly webinars on Monday, March 4th from 7-8:30 pm.  This coming Monday's webinar is being presented by Kevin Backus from Backus Poultry Processing in Loose Creek, MO.  He will present on "Safe Poultry Processing".

Kevin and his family have been in the poultry processing business since the early 1900's.  They are one of the few poultry processors in the state that contract with small independent poultry farmers to process birds.  With Kevin being raised in the business he has seen healthy and not so healthy birds arrive at the family processing facility.

Kevin received a SARE Farmer/Rancher Grant to give workshops across the state on how to on-farm process poultry safely.  He has also written a short manual "Safer Management Practices for Small Poultry Processors as part of his grants as well.

To join the webinar go to and log in as a guest . 

If you miss the webinar, it will be archived and can be found at the Missouri Begining Farmers Program's Online Learning Community.
