Affordable Mobile Meat Processing Trailers

Join Sherri and Chris to learn how affordable and functional a small mobile meat processing unit can be. The demands on small meat processing facilities has grown even stronger over the past year, with many plants booked out into 2022. Some producers and processors are exploring how mobile meat processing trailers can play a role in local and regional food systems. The Schmidts will share how they are helping to meet this demand.

PRESENTER
S: Chris and Sherri Schmidt of Mobile Processing Trailers & Supply LLC

Chris and Sherri Schmidt farmed and ranched in NW KS for 43 years prior to moving to Kiowa, CO in 2015. They directly marketed their beef to the Front Range area of Colorado for over 30 years. Later chicken and eggs were added to their product line. Due to a lack of availability of local poultry processing, Chris designed and built the first Federally Inspected Turnkey Mobile Poultry Processing Trailer in the United States. After moving to Colorado they developed a market in downtown Denver for their broilers, delivering approximately 300/week and approximately 30 cases of eggs/week.
Chris and Sherri were members of the KFU for a number of years and Chris served on the State KFU Board of Directors from 2009 to 2015. They are currently members of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union.
They are parents of four children and have ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Please join in! You don’t have to leave home and the chores, the price is right, and it will be really good to network with each other.
