The Good Abattoir Guide

2 Feb

Our friends at Oaklands Pig have put together a great resource for small hold farmers; the Good Abattoir Guide.

The good abattoir guide aims to provide the following information for small hold farmers:

  • “their pigs have been well treated both during unloading, and in the pens prior to slaughter
  • that they are slaughtered with care, quickly and humanely
  • that the abattoir will handle their pig carcass throughout the process to ensure the best quality meat, and ensure its traceability
  • that where the abattoir also butcher the pig, it is cut up to the customers specification, and butchered and presented professionally
  • that the abattoir is friendly to smallholders, easy to deal with, reliable, and all the other things that you want”

If you’re a pig keeper and you have feedback, please get in touch with the guys of Oaklands so the can keep making their abattoir guide better.
