RULES AND REGULATIONS
DO NOT DROP OFF WITHOUT FIRST TALKING TO AN EMPLOYEE!!! We use fire arms to knock animals. If you walk in the back doors UNINVITED you will be walking into the LINE OF FIRE!!!!!
You must call 48 hours prior to appointment if your animal has any of the following conditions:
- Injured in ANY way
- Has Blue eye or an eye infection
- Limps, Gimps, or Falls frequently
- They are aggressive to other animals or people
- ANYTHING ELSE THAT IS OUT OF THE ORDINARY PHYSICALLY
We are a full inspected facility so unless your slaughter day is a "custom" kill day an inspector will be present for 100% of the day. If they deem the animal as a "suspect" their temperature will be taken prior to slaughter. We have absolutely no control with this. It is the inspector's call.
We will NOT contact you if your animal is deemed a suspect by the inspector from the State of Kansas.
We will contact you if your animal has a higher then normal temperature, significant abscess and/or bruising, or any out the normal occurrences we feel will effect the quality of meat or the finished weight ratio so you can plan accordingly.
Bison drop offs need to be scheduled for a specific times one week prior to slaughter appointment.
