There are actually quite a few USDA slaughter facilities west of the rockies. Our business, Central Oregon Butcher Boys in Prineville, OR, is the farthest east before Idaho that processes for small producers. We do a lot of processing for small ranchers that sell directly to the public through Farmer's Markets, restaurants, and small grocery stores. Our customer's greatest advantage is that with the USDA inspection they can sell their product anywhere. One of the challenges is, however, the necessity to sell all of their product. Certain products are easy to sell, but others need better marketing. So they may be short certain products, but long on many others.
