North Central SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Guide to Designing a Small Red Meat Plant
Meat plants can vary widely in use and design. How you build a plant depends on the types of processes you intend to have as part of your plant (e.g. slaughter, fabrication, production of ready-to-eat product). If you intend to construct, expand, or upgrade a locker-type meat plant, these plans were created to help you avoid some headaches, including determining whether or not you should actually expand. The final design of your plant should be based on the specific needs of your particular business.
