The Havre-based meat processing cooperative is getting national attention, with Paul Neubauer, board chair for the cooperative, talking about its impact and its potential in a panel discussion at USDA's 99th Annual Agricultural Outlook Forum held Feb. 23-24.

A Havre-based meat processing cooperative received some national attention last month when the chair of its board sat on a panel during a USDA annual forum.

A release from Montana Farmers Union said Montana Premium Processing Cooperative Board Chair Paul Neubauer was part of "Strategies for more and better markets" panel discussion at the USDA 99th Annual Agriculture Outlook Forum held Feb. 23-24 in Arlington, Virginia.

Projects like Montana Premium Processing Cooperative help display alternative systems, as well as bridge gaps between producers, consumers and lawmakers, Neubauer said.
