We encourage our customers to tour our plant when thinking about having an animal processed with us. Our plant always welcomes visitors. If you would like to schedule an animal for processing please think ahead. The winter and spring seasons are our busy times of the year. Slaughter dates fill up quickly and you need to make an appointment.

Call us Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm to make an appointment. Our helpful staff will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

When bringing in an animal for slaughter, be sure to have it here by 8am the morning of slaughter. It’s always helpful if you have a list of eaters and phone numbers ready to go.

How Much Meat will I actually Take Home?

Frankly there is no exact answer to this question. Why? Because…

  • Each animal is built differently! One may have more muscle or fat or bone than the next.
  • Meat can be close trimmed or left with some fat on. Cutting differences determine quality.
  • Meat can be boneless or bone-in. This will make a difference in the weight and amount of meat you put in your freezer.
  • Weight loss during slaughter and processing of meat from live animals to table-ready cuts is normal.

Slaughter

Slaughtering removes blood, hide, and inedible parts form the animal.  In beef, veal, and lamb it will account for an average loss of slightly less than half the original live weight of the animal.  The slaughter weight loss in hogs averages about one-quarter of the live weight.

EXAMPLE: If your steer weighs 750 lbs. live, it will weigh 397 – 465 lbs. dressed. (53%-62% of live weight)

Processing

Processing is the cutting of the dressed meat into ready- to- cook portions. It accounts for another loss in weight as excess fat and bone are trimmed away. Not only does trimming make meat more appetizing, but it also eliminates extra storage space and further kitchen preparation.

EXAMPLE: If your hog weighs 145lbs. dressed, expect approximately 104lbs. – 118lbs. of eating meat after processing. (72% – 82% of dressed weight)
