Locker Meat Brochure Image Locker Meats Information: If you’re an area farmer who is interested in selling Locker Meats to friends, family members and other individuals, this booklet provides information about working with your customers and educating them about the yields and cuts they can expect when they order a quarter, half, or whole animal from you. Just click on the image to your left if you would like to read, print, or download this information. Locker Meats are all vacuum packaged, labeled with the name of the cut, and marked “Not for sale.”
AWA Logo Final Humane Slaughter: The USDA has rules and regulations regarding humane animal handling, and our on-site inspector monitors our slaughter process every day that we are killing animals at T&E Meats. However, our slaughter facility has also been inspected by a third party specialist from Animal Welfare Approved (AWA), an organization that has ensured the proper handling and slaughtering of our animals since 2012. Some of our farmers have become “AWA farms,” so they need to make sure that we, as their slaughter plant, are also inspected by AWA.

Following a review on January 6, 2015, T&E Meats is recommended by AWA for slaughter of beef, pork, sheep, and goats from AWA farms. If you wish to find out more about Animal Welfare Approved, just click on the image to the left to go to the Animal Welfare Approved website.
