Farmer cleaning outside of used meat processing equipment used for mobile slaughter

Used Equipment

The right piece of equipment for processing meat on your farm or ranch isn’t always a new, custom-designed and manufactured unit. If you’re in the market to acquire or auction off used meat processing equipment, how will you find a buyer or seller?

Consider how you would seek out a standard piece of equipment or machinery. You have a long list of options: Visit your local retail store. Look online. Dig into your network of contacts.

Comparatively, the process of buying or selling used meat processing equipment is more difficult. Try searching online for a used butcher truck, mobile slaughterhouse, mobile meat processing trailer, or cut and wrap machine. Regardless of your search terms, you will likely yield few results.

Only a small, niche group of farmers or ranchers are looking to buy or sell pre-owned meat processing equipment. Since the equipment is more specialized, it isn’t accessible, advertised, and available like standardized equipment. Either you personally invest time, energy, and money in your search, or link to a network that can take on this task for you.

At Friesla, we’re connected to a global network of meat processors and producers. As your broker, we draw on this network to find the used meat processing equipment you need, or a buyer for the equipment you’re looking to offload. Commission our team to begin your search.
