Steps involved in the inspection of meat at the Abattoir.
Step 1: Livestock Producers must bring their livestock to the abattoir for slaughter.
Step 2: The livestock will be weighed, the weight will be recorded and a form will be issued to the livestock producer. (This form serves as a record for the weight of the animal and the calculation of slaughter fees).
Step 3: Animals will be inspected before and after the slaughtering process to ensure that safe and wholesome meat reaches the consumer.
