This might help: This came to me from the USDA.
Here is the online list of all federally inspected establishments:http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Regulations_&_ ... /index.asp
If you download the Excel version (XLS) you can sort the file by state to help you filter your choices. Also, the "Activities" column is the column that I was talking about with you on the phone - this column will tell you if the establishment slaughters animals. Also, if you look at the establishment number, you will see some numbers with an M in front, some with a P, and some with both an M and P. M stands for Meat, P for Poultry, FYI.
Here is a link to the mobile slaughter section of the NMPAN (Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network) website that I gave to you over the phone today: http://www.nichemeatprocessing.org
As I mentioned earlier FSIS does not keep a formal list of mobile units; you will find mobile units listed amongst all other inspected establishments in the FSIS directory of all plants. However, the NMPAN website does have an unofficial listing of mobile units, including some background information and contact info.
Here is the link to the online 9 CFR, Code of Federal Regulations:http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/wais ... 1.html#301
