Meat and Poultry Ontario has partnered with AgSights on a Farmer-Processor Connections Initiative. The goal is to establish a centralized online booking system where producers can book livestock processing appointments with Ontario abattoirs. The project is funded by the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
If you are a producer who has had difficulty booking processing space recently, they would like to hear from you. Please find more information, and a contact form at this link: http://agsights.com/what-is-processor-links/ (Under 'Learn More About Processor Links, choose 'Farmers,' to access a fillable form.)
Filling in the form will give you access to administrative support for booking abattoir space, and will help the initiative to gather information used for implementing their long term project.
