|dc.description.abstract||The 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
