Abstract

The purpose of the proposed action is to make it easier for cattle and hog farmers to bring their animals to slaughter on-site, and in greater Whatcom County. The action also seeks to ease the processing of cattle and hog carcasses into cured, smoked, canned or other value added prepared meat products. Further, the action strives to preserve the agricultural character and viability of rural Whatcom County.
