Reviews

"Poultry producing books have proliferated in recent years; however, most have focused on slaughtering chickens for home consumption. None have laid out the details for putting together a small-scale slaughterhouse. Readers and communities with an interest in organizing an MPPT [Mobile Poultry Processing Trailer] will find this resource invaluable."


"Using her experience establishing a mobile poultry slaughterhouse on Martha's Vineyard, Berlow comprehensively describes how to adapt her methods to other communities based on their unique needs to ensure an economically feasible production for poultry slaughter."
