Let’s make your farm business more profitable by maximizing the yield of your carcass through smart processing choices. While acknowledging the challenges and limitations to meat processing, there are still creative ways to meet market demand, get customers excited about unique cuts, and get the best value out of your animal. In this workshop we will present approaches to cutting that maximize the yields and maintain the quality of the meat. In addition, we will discuss creative ways to market your cuts depending on your buyers including some value added ideas. As part of this workshop, we will tour Stillman’s facilities and take a look at animal sides and quarters.
