Designing meat packing plant handling facilities for cattle and hogs



Designing meat packing plant handling facilities for cattle and hogs



Transactions of the ASAE 22(4): 912-917



The design of more efficient animal handling facilities which are labour saving, and reduce bruise losses as well as injuries to employees, is discussed. The facilities discussed are unloading chutes, holding pens, single file leadup chutes and slaughter restraining chutes. Observations in over 75 meat packing plants, and feedlot shipping areas throughout the United States, indicate that stock-yard layouts utilizing curved drive alleys and diagonal pens are most efficient.
