Independent local meat processors are a vital component of resilient food systems. They contribute to the rural economy, provide a needed service to livestock producers, and ensure quality meat is readily available.
During its 2021 session, the Nebraska Legislature recognized the need to make it easier for consumers to purchase individual packages of meat directly from producers or processors with the unanimous passage of Legislative Bill (LB) 324. The legislation created a framework for what is known as a herd share program.
