Approximately f0 businessmen,
poultry growers, feed dealers and
interested citizens met. at the court
house here Tuesday night and die
cussed the possibilities of a broiler
dressing plant for Madison County.
Ralph Kelley, of the State De
partment of Agriculture, told the
group the importance of such a plant "
being located in Western North Car
olina. He pointed out that such a
plant in Madison County would
mean the employment of perhaps
125 or more local persons and would
also supply business for servicing
groups. "A plant in Madison Coun
ty would mean a steady demand tar
local birds and would involve feedT
dealers, financing, trucking, build
ing supply dealers, ami ouur re.-.edl
businesses in supplying local poul
.rymen," Mr. Kelley said. He re
iterated that it would be a stable
business and would offer the fann
ers a market at home.
Harry Silver, farm agent, pre
tided at the meeting and called o
C. E .Mashburn and Mr. Kelley as
-pen the floor for discussions.
Several western North Carolina
franchise dealers were present and
told of the thousands of birds being
shipped out of western North Caro
lina every week. The dealers ex
pressed their opinions that such
plant in Madison County would be
a wise investment
