  5. Prepare the site for the mobile abattoir. You will need to:
    • prepare a flat area where the mobile abattoir can park;

The mobile abattoir is also available to deliver your animals to a processing facility after they're slaughtered. This maintains the inspection chain for processing if the animal's meat has not been sold yet. The unit can transport up to:

  • 8 bison, beef cattle or elk;
  • 15 hogs; or
  • 20 smaller animals such as sheep or goats.
