The article focuses on the requirements to operate a slaughterhouse facility by the small poultry farmers in the U.S. The small poultry farmers need to obtain a state license to butcher their poultry, and bypass the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspection as stipulated in the federal exemption. However, growers are given a cheaper option by creating their own processing facilities.
