Montana's meat processing more than doubled in the fiscal year that ended June 30, Gov. Greg Gianforte's office has announced.

According to data collected by the state’s Department of Livestock Meat and Poultry Inspectors at state-inspected and custom exempt processing establishments, 54,431 more animals were processed in state Fiscal Year 2022 than in the same period a year earlier.

In 2021-22, state-inspected processing facilities processed 105,332 animals, up from 50,901 in 2020-21, according to the governor.

“Montana meat processors continued their strong momentum, more than doubling the amount of meat processed over the last year,” Gianforte said. “This news is a testament to the Montana work ethic, and it’s a strong signal that our targeted investments in local processing are working.”

Increasing meat processing capacity in the state has been among the governor's priorities, he said.
