There is a licenced facility in Yukon that can provide inspected meat slaughter services. It is a mobile abattoir facility based in Whitehorse.

The mobile abattoir provides on-farm slaughter service, for producers and businesses that are interested in using the services of this unit they should first contact Jesse Walchuk at the Agriculture Branch 867.667.5838.  The mobile abattoir will help Yukon livestock producers gain access to retail Yukon markets. The mobile abattoir began operations on southern Yukon farms in September 2006.
