Agencies seek trucking, carbon sources, for state’s livestock farmers

The Minnesota Board of Animal Health and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture need assistance with disposal and composting of livestock carcasses due to the closing of meat packing plants. The agencies are surveying the trucking industry to determine if firms have extra capacity to haul carcasses. The trucking survey is available online here. The agencies are also seeking carbon sources, such as woodchips, to aid in the composting process. The carbon survey is available online here.
