  1. What is the difference between USDA and Custom Processing?

Processing is considered 'custom' when you are processing an animal for yourself, or selling a portion of the animal by the whole, half, or quarter. You will need USDA processing when you are selling by the cut/pound (for example, at a Farmers Market). Trackside strives to maintain the same level of food quality and safety standards, regardless of processing choice.
