This webpage is a collection of information on the many aspects of raising and processing meat animals on a small scale. We address both the small-scale commercial producer wanting to supply meat to customers and the backyard, home-use producer wanting to supply food for the family.

Many important steps need to be taken prior to and after the actual slaughter of any meat animal. These are necessary for welfare, safety, and meat quality. We start off this collection with information on selecting and purchasing meat animals that will yield high amounts of quality food, take you through growing and finishing harvest-ready animals, address humane handling and slaughter, as well as food safety and laws governing the process. We hope to contribute to a secure food system in Oregon.
