Butchering & Processing

The Elma Locker & Grocery, Inc. specializes in butchering and processing of beef, hogs, buffalo, goats, sheep, and lambs.  Call us at the number listed to the left on the screen to schedule a butchering date.  We also process deer trim, whole field dressed deer, and we participate in the HUSH program.  Click on the products page in the menu to the left to see the products we carry, and the products we can make from your beef, hog, buffalo, goat, sheep, lamb, and deer.  To see the cutting instructions for beef and pork click on the Beef Cutting Instructions or the Pork Cutting Instructions button in the menu bar.

 To participate in the HUSH program the deer must be field dressed and delivered to the locker promptly if the weather is unseasonably warm. HUSH stands for Help Us Stop Hunger.  HUSH deer are trimmed out and ground for burger.  The local food bank picks up the deer burger and distributes it locally. This is a great way to have the fun of hunting and the satisfaction of helping to feed the hungry in our area.

During deer hunting season we process the deer taken by bow before we process the shot gun season deer.  We do our best to process all deer in the order they have been delivered to the locker.

We expect the deer trim delivered to the locker for processing to be free of hair and bloody pieces.  We prefer deer trim to be in pieces, not ground, and no other meats added to the deer, like beef or pork.   Also, when delivering field dressed deer we prefer the hide to be left on the carcass.  Removing the hide does not save you money on the processing.  The hide actually protects the meat on the carcass. 

Remember, all deer, whether field dressed or
 trimmed out must be kept cold or frozen

  Use the menu on the left to guide you through our web pages. 

We are a State Inspected Facility.  We butcher Monday, Wednesday and Friday with inspected butchering on Fridays.

Call us to schedule your butchering date.  Remember, our schedule fills up fast during late summer and early fall.  Contact us as soon as you can to schedule your butchering date. Our number is 641-393-2287.
