Wisconsin’s $5 million effort to embolden the state’s meat processing industry now includes a website to help link potential workers to training programs.
The state’s agriculture department recently unveiled the Meat Pathways website, which includes links to training options and information about jobs.
“From working with livestock to making delicious sausages, meat processing is a vast and exciting profession,” according to one portion of the site, which posts information about jobs including work as a commercial truck driver, plant manager and inspector.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers in January announced up to $5 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding for the Meat Talent Development Program. It offers tuition reimbursement for students in Wisconsin meat processing training programs, such as one on safety rules recently offered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota are among the states to join a nationwide trend of butchery training programs.
