Introduction to the Red Meat Processing Industry

Many products of the red meat industry are used daily in nearly all aspects of our lives. While many enjoy a BBQ and wear leather shoes, few have an understanding of the process undertaken between the farm and retail shop, or of the scope of the industry that produces these products.

While meat is derived from a number of sources, this module focuses on the processing of:

• beef and veal
• sheepmeat and lamb
• goatmeat.
