PINE RIVER — Happy Dancing Turtle is working with local and regional partners in an effort to bring a Mobile Slaughter Unit (MSU) and other meat processing infrastructure to the area.

Central Lakes College is developing a meat cutting program and ongoing apprenticeship program to fill the workforce need and the MSU will serve a working classroom, while also serving producer needs.

Cass County recently approved providing $200,000 in matching funds for the project and additional funds are being sought via other partners including the Minnesota Farmers Union Foundation and the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute.
