Wisconsin ag secretary says getting a new meat inspector will take some time
Wisconsin’s budget is currently closed, including some agricultural spending clauses. One of the approved and legislative budget items was funding additional meat inspectors from the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
Randy Romanski, Wisconsin Ag’s secretary, stopped by Farm Technology Days and said it would take time to welcome these new inspectors to the brownfield. “There are several steps in the process. Our hope is to do it as soon as possible.”
And when it comes to slaughter grants, Romano says his agency needs to put those dollars into the hands of the industry so they can expand their slaughter capacity and launch new equipment. “Before doing that, we need to go back to Congress and make a plan to say how this is going to spend money. There is a plan. We want to put dollars out there. I Must go through that form. “
Roman Polanski says adding a meat inspector adds resilience to the supply chain.
Romano spoke with the Brownfield during Wisconsin Farm Technology Day in Eau Claire.
