Rough costs in abbertoire
« on: September 21, 2014, 09:47:34 am »
Hi all,
Just a quick question how much roughly do abbertoires charge per lamb to slaughter...
Not butchered... is it per kg dead carcass or live weight per kg?
Thanks i did try to look online but kept on getting the pig abbertoire guide.
Thanks Wayne

I think prices are different all over the country - we have little choice up here as use one half an hour away at Inverurie but the cost is very high (possibly the highest in the country) at 16 - 22 per lamb / Hogget.

I only know what I paid for slaughter and cutting and that was 19 per lamb. Vac pac was 7 on top of that.

We pay 12 kill and 13 cut. Kill is 14 for hogs and mutton.

Millers of Speyside charge 20 for slaughter of Lambs and Hoggets, older sheep are 25. They don't do butchery any-more.

Rhinds of Elgin have become very expensive - a neighbour was asked 50 to slaughter a lamb - I think Rhinds want to stop private kills - too much bother for them I suppose.

We just had ours done and it was 30 for slaughter, butcher and vac packing.
Why not have a look at our smallholding - www.wthanonline.co.uk

The inverurie abbatoir is about 18-19 per head for slaughter. Butchery can be anything from 25 to 40 a head dep on keenness of butcher and degree of fancyness required. I butchered my last 4 myself...

We pay 22 for kill and basic butchery into one bag(farmer's cuts).  If the joints are bagged and labelled it is 7 per head extra plus mincing is 3.  Expensive, but the staff are really helpful and good with the animals.
