Wisconsin’s Meat Talent Development Program is on the fast track

A Wisconsin effort to get more people trained as meat processors is developing rapidly.  Betsy Leonard with the Wisconsin Technical College System tells Brownfield the Meat Talent Development Program partnership with the state’s ag department has moved from an idea to a program rapidly.  “It is not very easy to start a conversation in January and have programming come to fruition in that same August, or in that same calendar or fiscal year and a lot of our nine colleges are looking at starting this programming already this fall in some sort of manner.”

Thanks to funding from the state budget and 50 million dollars from federal pandemic relief funds, Leonard says the Meat Talent Development Program offers tuition reimbursement.
