Modern freezing works (2 o 2)

Modern freezing works

The chain system of killing, dressing and processing was introduced in the early 1930s. Once the sheep is killed it is hung on a moving chain and each process is performed by a different person. These days machines even do many of the jobs, such as removing the animal’s pelt. At the Pukeuri freezing works near Ōamaru the hygienic handling of the meat is evident, with the operators wearing overalls, aprons, hairnets and gloves to prevent contamination
