Wood Carbon Sourcing Information
The impacts from COVID-19 have been wide-ranging. One of the latest impacts has been the loss of pork processing capacity. This may force Minnesota pork producers to depopulate and compost hogs on their farms. Composting requires wood chips, sawdust or other carbon sources. We are contacting you to help us link pork producers in need of material with potential sources. If you have a supply of wood chips, mulch, etc. on-hand or are regularly creating it, please take this short survey.

This survey is voluntary. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is collecting this information in order to possibly share your contact information with pork producers and county emergency managers in response to COVID-19. Note that any information you provide is public data under the law, and the MDA would be required to provide it to any person who asks for it.

I understand that the information I provide in this survey is classified as public data under Minnesota law. It will be used by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to link wood chip producers to hog farmers to facilitate composting, but will also be provided to any party that requests it, as required by Minnesota Statutes Chapter 13. *
Thank you!
