Beef Cattle

Livestock

From February 2011 to January 2013, the UI Sustainability Center partnered with local livestock producers and processors and UI faculty and students to research the economic development potential of increasing livestock production and processing for local and regional markets in northern Idaho and eastern Washington.  The project explored the viability of different USDA-inspected processing options by examining economic feasibility, environmental impacts, consumer demand, producer capacity and willingness to participate, and processing capacity.
