Special Poultry Processing Exemption Extended Another Year
By Sheila Neal
 
In an effort to support poultry farmers across the state, Dr. Beth Yongue, Director of NCDA&CS Meat and Poultry Inspection Division, has extended the special exemption which allows poultry exempt operators to slaughter or process other persons’ poultry for another year.  The new expiration date is December 31, 2018. 
 
We all would like to extend a big thank you to NCDA&CS Meat and Poultry Inspection Division for their continued support of independent poultry producers across the state.
 
Here is the public list of poultry exempt operators who have received approval from the Director of NCDA&CS Meat and Poultry Inspection Division to slaughter or process other person’s poultry (provided all other provisions of MPID Notice 6-14 are followed). NC Choices will regularly update this list as more exempt operators are approved for public service. Please note that the second tab lists the contacts for the Mobile Processing Units that are available for rent if producers want to process their own birds on their farm.
