Lower Wisconsin deer harvest helps beef producers get processing done

A beef producer had a lucky break because deer hunters were less successful.  Doug Rebout raises corn, soybeans, and beef near Janesville, Wisconsin.  He tells Brownfield it’s hard booking a processor for the beef he sells. “I’ve got some scheduled into 2023, and I actually scheduled those last March, so those animals weren’t even born yet when I was scheduling. That’s what you have to do nowadays.”

But his processor called him recently with an extra opening, which Rebout quickly accepted.
