Meat Processing

Showalter’s Custom Meat Processing

We provide custom meat processing services for your beef, meat hogs, deer, elk and other animals as well (including bear).

Your Animal. Your Meat.

Your Animal = Your Meat is our commitment. Knowing the effort you put into raising a great animal we put great effort into keeping your animal your meat.

We take your instructions on cuts and packaging seriously, and endeavor to meet your specifications every time.

Schedule an Appointment.

If you have a hog or beef that you want us to process, you will need to give us a call and schedule an appointment. 2022 is already booked full on bringing in your own beef & hogs. Plus we have close to 200 people waiting on any cancelations.

Need Something SOON?

If you need a beef or hog done soon, we recommend that you try E.A. Biggs Farm in Smiths Grove KY.
Their phone number is 270 563 3408.
They are a new up and coming shop and should be able to get you worked in MUCH SOONER than we can.

New Booking Policy for 2023

We have started booking for 2023, however to keep down “just in case” scheduling we are requiring a non-refundable kill fee payment at the time of booking. This comes off your bill at pick up, so no extra cost to you, but if you do cancel it is NOT REFUNDABLE. This booking payment can be done by check or cash in our office or by card over the phone.


Animal drop-off instructions


Make sure to bring your animal on the agreed upon day that we have set up when you scheduled your animal.

1. Pull around the right side of the building, where you will notice an “Enter Here” sign above the unloading dock. We will try to notice that you have arrived and send someone to help work the gates so you can pull through the first set of gates and help you get unloaded.

Custom Processing Animals are labeled to keep your animal your animal

After unloading, collect an animal ID paper from the team member who has helped you unload, this paper will have your animal’s tag number that we use to keep your animal identified as your animal.

2. Park and bring that animal ID paper to the office where we will do the paperwork and take the processing instructions on your animal. Remember to park your vehicle in a place that does not block others from pulling through and unloading their animals. (perhaps along the fence on the left after you circle around after leaving the unloading dock)

Live weight Scales

In order to better serve our customers we recently added a live-weight scales to our livestock unloading dock. So if you need a live weight, simply inform the team member who is helping you unload your animal and we will be glad to get the live-weight for you.
