What is a cut sheet and how do you complete one? If you market beef, goat, lamb and pork-we think you'll enjoy learning all about basic anatomy, discovering questions that you can ask at processing time & more with Emma Schroeder!
This is a presentation for farmers who direct market meat to their customers. Whether through a CSA or a farmers’ market, there is always a processor that you need to work with. The processor asks you, " what you would like done with the carcass". It’s time to fill out the cut sheet and the options looks vague like you should be able to read within the lines. To have confidence in this part makes the difference in knowing which parts to send to the grinder and ask for anything extra.
This presentation will educate, clarify and decode the cut sheets commonly used by processors for small farmers. We will cover basic anatomy, the marketability of beef, goat, lamb and pork cuts and recommended questions for processors. Through a brief lesson, educational handouts and plenty of time for questions and discussion, participants will leave with the confidence and additional knowledge they need to fill out a whichever cut sheet they come across.
