dc.description.abstractThe economic feasibility of a goat processing plant in the Sandersville, Georgia area is dependent on a number of factors. Plant possibilities are defined by the availability of market goats (the basic input for goat processing) in a reasonable supply area, along with the number and size of competitors for the available market goat supply. The economics of operating different size plants will determine the potential for a goat processing plant of the size dictated by the available goat production in the area. Community decisions makers will need to know the potential economic impact of a goat processing plant so that they may gauge the benefits of any infrastructure investment required to facilitate a new goat processing plant. This report examines all the relevant economic issues surrounding the likely success of a new goat processing plant operating in the Sandersville, Georgia area as well as the potential economic return to the community. The report begins by examining current goat slaughter/processing capacity and goat production in the relevant area around Sandersville, Georgia.en_US
