The article focuses on the Mobile Matanza, a rolling livestock butchering unit and the pride of Taos County Economic Development Corp. in Taos County, New Mexico. It represents a way for dozens of small New Mexico ranchers to get their product to market and earn fair value. Mobile Matanza also represents the community coming together around a single plan. In addition, it represents a commitment to a way of life, to small and sustainable ranches and a community-based way to grow the food animals. Further, the unit will primarily serve more than 50 small ranches in New Mexico's counties and humanely process beef, bison, lamb and at certain times pork.
