This is a scale drawing of the proposed meat works making use of this idea.
There is nothing on the floor except a motorized dressing cradle over a central drainage system from the hide stripped to the sticker and a drain from the saw to the boning room door, there are some legs on the offal packing table and carton conveyors.
Water services are under the floor, They come up directly to a LSU and the drain goes directly down under the LSU. Sterilization is by fire.
There is nothing over the product except two chains that come from a hoist above the ceiling and a rope for the electric saw, The structure for the dressing rails is tight up against the ceiling. All electricity is outside the room and control of the electric is by TV type remote control.
Hence we little or no night cleaning
This file describes step by step, how the cattle are dressed, It can eliminate the cattle wash, It shackles the animal before it is released from the restraining race so we need no dry landing area and the associated safety fences. It has no mechanical aids to maintain. .The dressing, boning and slicing are combined so there is no match between the current custom and practice to argue about.
I have proposed that we inflate the carcass prior to doing any work on the belly area to make it easier to manually skin. With all my skill, i could not skin an animal as well on the cradle as on the ground, because on the ground i tilted the animal from side to side so the when i lifted and pulled on the hide it was a pull almost vertical.
Of course we could forget the inflation and have the cradle tilt both ways where the belly is skinned. We would need one extra work space because we would not be able to work both sides of the same animal.
I don't know who would teach the skills. It's all easy really,
