Processing

Cloud’s Meats have been custom processing beef and pork for the people of southwest Missouri since 1959. You can have your animal processed by the most experienced staff in the area in a clean and modern processing facility. Your meat will be processed, and packaged according to your specifications and family size. Our highly trained staff will process your animal to maximize your return of usable cuts. When processing your hog, we can produce the same hickory smoked and cured products available in our retail area, from your animal.

PROCESSING OPTIONS

Beef

All meat is looked over by our experienced crew, double wrapped, and quick frozen.

PORK

All curing and smoking take place at Cloud's Meats. We use brown sugar cure and hickory wood for smoking.

LAMB & GOAT

We process lambs and goats by appointment. A basic fee is charged per head for the butchering, cutting and wrapping.

Buffalo & WILD GAME

Buffalo, elk and wild hogs are the most popular for processing. We butcher the buffalo onsite and by appointment. The cutting for a buffalo is similar to beef. We accept elk and wild hog skinned and quartered.
