Questions: Slaughtering small livestock legally in Texas
One of many things I'm looking into is raising/slaughtering my own chickens, tilapia and rabbits for restaurants, specialty meat markets and individuals. I can't find the info I need on the USDA site and I don't know if Texas has any special requirements. Our extension agent wasn't much help.
Is anyone doing this and what did you have to do to get the necessary licenses? What special equipment did you need for SMALL animals like these? Anyone in Texas here doing this who can give me state requirements?
