Mobile Slaughter Service
for red meat livestock is available late April through mid-October 2020 - dependent on weather. The mobile abattoir only operates when nighttime temperatures remain above -10C. A completed yearly application or renewal must be approved before we can book service. Bookings must be made at least 1 week before services are needed. (Please allow at least 2 weeks for processing your application.)

Tum Tum's Black Gilt Meats (Graham, Simone, & Tom) provide professional slaughter service in the Yukon Government Mobile Abattoir which allows inspected red meat to be sold at the retail level in the Yukon market place.

In normal daily operations, the mobile abattoir is able to process 5 beef or elk and up to 10 pigs, sheep or goats. This allows for setup and timely delivery to a cut & wrap facility. There is no charge for the mobile abattoir to deliver to an inspected cut & wrap facility. Arrangements for accepting delivery at the cut & wrap must be made by the producer.

To avoid disappointment, please make arrangements as early as possible. Minimum callout for beef or elk is 2 animals, for pigs, sheep or goats is 4 animals and for rabbits is 25.

 

In order to ensure the Yukon government mobile abattoir is not in direct competition with local private enterprise, prices for slaughter service in the mobile abattoir are set at 10% above the local fixed base abattoir.

The minimum cost for the mobile abattoir to attend at a farm is $220 (based on 2 large animals or 4 smaller ones).

Cost per animal:
Beef, Bison, or Yak
$121.00
Elk
$110.00
Pigs
$  60.50
Sheep or goats
$  38.50
Rabbits
$    7.70

Other costs:
travel at $2/km measured one-way from the Whitehorse city limits
* standby fees: the livestock owner may be charged up to $75/hour for unnecessary delays for which they are responsible.
