High school students at West Central Area Schools will have a unique opportunity to learn how to process meat in a new mobile processing unit beginning in 2024. FFA Advisor and ag teacher Eric Sawatzke says students will learn how to process meat from cutting and grinding to storage. “We could have a self-sustaining program right there teaching all aspects from farm-to-table.” The Minnesota school has received numerous grants from the community and nationally. Sawatzke credits that community support for the mobile meat unit and a recently completed greenhouse. The unit will be shared with Ashby schools as well. Hear the full interview with Sawatzke here.
