The Blackfeet Agriculture Resource Management Plan (ARMP) will be holding a public meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 21 from 1-4 p.m. at the Glacier Peaks Hotel on an update of the feasibility study for a beef/bison processing plant as well as predation prevention.
The Natural Resource Defense Council will present on methodologies and a pilot program for predation prevention through a pilot fencing program.
The ARMP team will be giving an update on the multi-species processing plant feasibility study, including information on international trade, grass finished beef and information regarding preparation for an operating beef/bison processing plant.
Additionally, the ARMP team will share how the foundational knowledge drawn from the Quapaw multi-species processing plant will inform decision-making moving forward with the Blackfeet processing plant.
There will be plenty of time for comments and questions from participants, farmers and ranchers.
