Mobile Slaughter Service for red meat livestock is available late April through early November - dependent on weather. The mobile abattoir cannot operate when nighttime temperatures drop below -10C. A completed yearly application or renewal must be approved before we can book service. (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. 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.
