Meat Animal Project

 Mission Statement:

The primary objective of the Dunn County Meat Animal Project is to encourage and educate livestock producers to improve their programs in the production, breeding and management of high-quality meat that will more adequately meet processing requirements and provide wholesome, nutritious and palatable meat as a food for the consumer.

|| It is a privilege, not a right, to be in the Dunn County Meat Animal Project. ||
