A welcome new book, The Mobile Poultry Slaughterhouse by Ali Berlow, addresses the need for small-scale poultry-processing facilities that are able to partner with neighboring poultry farmers to process humanely raised, ethically slaughtered meat.
The 130-page manual is a complete guide for building, licensing and running a portable poultry-processing trailer. The book includes directions for obtaining financing, assembling the trailer and crew, getting permits and licenses, performing the slaughter, and more.
