Working H Meats abides by the Humane Methods of Livestock Slaughter Act and all USDA Livestock Slaughter Regulations. Our facility is staffed with a USDA Inspector on slaughter days and all animals are slaughtered under Federal Meat Inspection.

All records and inspection documentation is kept on site

All cattle, sheep, and swine are handled in a humane fashion and are rendered insensible with single blow that is rapid and effective. This is done before the animals are shackled hoisted, cast or cut. In all instances we work hard at reducing animal stress. Animals spend 24 hours in stalls with hay and fresh water to quiet them and calm them.

All butchering and meat cutting follows sanitary dressing procedures and packaging.

*The vertebral column of animals over 30 months of age must be removed as SPECIFIED RISK MATERIALand should not be present in cuts of meat for supply to consumers. Specifically, the vertebral body (the short thick part of the 'T') including the first inch of the transverse process (the long tapering part of the 'T') must be removed from cuts supplied to consumer, when derived from animals over 30 months. It is therefore not possible to sell a cut containing the traditional 'T' of bone from animals over 30 months. It is possible to cut meat for human consumption from this area in animals over 30 months, but it must not contain these SRM bones.
