Federal funds add muscle to tribal meat processing
In response to meat shortages spurred by the pandemic and a consolidated meat industry, the Biden-Harris Administration is dedicating $1 billion to smaller, independent meat processing endeavors.

That’s a promising boost for a handful of local, tribally operated meat processing facilities that service tribal ranchers and consumers.

Native America Calling talks with agriculture advocates about efforts to leverage the federal money to diversify the meat processing industry.
