Minnesota state "equal to" (E2) plants can produce and process meat and poultry products for wholesale within the state; these plants are under continuous inspection by the Minnesota Meat and Poultry Inspection Program. If you are a producer looking for a facility that can slaughter your livestock or poultry, it is a good idea to contact plants far in advance of when your animals will be ready for market. Some slaughter plants fill their schedules a year or more out.

    These lists are updated on a weekly basis. If you have questions about the information provided, please contact the Dairy and Meat Inspection Division at 651-201-6300. Contact individual plants directly for specific information about their operations and availability.
