1/8th, Quarters Halves and Full Carcass Orders:

  1. What is Carcass Weight: Carcass weight refers to the weight of an animal's body after it has been slaughtered and prepared for butchering, but before it is cut into individual retail cuts. This weight typically includes the muscle, bone, and fat, but excludes the head, hide, hooves, and internal
  2. What is Trim: In the context of meat processing, "trim" refers to the removal of excess fat, connective tissue, and other unwanted parts from a carcass or primal cuts to prepare the meat for retail or consumption. Trimming helps improve the appearance, texture, and quality of the meat and ensures that the final product meets specific standards and customer preferences. There are different types of trim, including: Fat Trim: Removing excess fat to achieve a desired level of leanness. Connective Tissue Trim: Removing sinew, gristle, and other tough connective tissues. Bone Trim: Removing bones from cuts where boneless meat is desired. Surface Trim: Removing any blemishes, bruises, or contamination from the surface of the meat. Trimming is an essential step in meat processing that affects the yield, quality, and presentation of the final meat products. Additionally, trim is often used as raw material for producing minced meat (ground meat) and sausages (snags), ensuring that all parts of the animal are utilized efficiently and economically. You have 2 different types of trimmings Mince Trim and sausage Trim. This is counted in to your overall weight. So if you you don't want either the end price will stay the same.
  3. Pricing: You pay based on the carcass weight, which includes muscle, bone, and fat, but excludes head, hide, and organs.

  1. Communication: Open communication between customers, farmers, and butchers is essential for resolving any issues related to shipping, delivery, or refunds. Customers are encouraged to reach out to the seller directly for assistance and clarification.
