Processing

To better serve you, all livestock must have an appointment for processing. We are a small establishment and must adhere to a tight schedule. We recommend you call no later than June to be scheduled for a fall appointment.

For your convenience livestock can be trucked into FLAME. We will transport them to Blood Farm at no extra charge. YOU MUST ALREADY BE SCHEDULED.

Product not picked up within 5 business days will be subject to a storage fee.

Notice beef customers: Blood Farm will no longer accept any LONG HORN BEEF (Scotch Highlander, Texas Longhorn). In order for us to accept these beef, the horns must be removed or cut down short before arrival.

Livestock Schedule

Monday and Thursday Hogs 
Tuesday Sheep/Lambs/Goats
Wednesday and Friday  Beef/Veal 

Cutting instructions are required before we will accept any livestock for slaughter. Cutting instruction form downloads are provided below:

It is important to fill out our cutting instruction form and bring it with you when delivering your animals. If we do not receive the filled out cutting instruction you may be turned away. If we accept your livestock without cutting instructions, it is your responsibility to get them to us. We will not call you—Your meat will be cut as a standard cut. Thank you for your understanding.

Livestock Tracking System

When your animal arrives at Blood Farm, you are met at the pen room door by a trained employee. They will assist you in unloading into our pens. Your animals go into their own pens. They are never corralled with other unfamiliar livestock. This avoids undo stress on the animal. Your name address and phone number are entered into a pen book that identifies your animal’s pen number. This identification will follow your livestock throughout the processing chain. There are numerous checks and balances in place to ensure that you receive the same product that you brought in.
