Lardering and Carcass Storage.
I have read so much of carcass preparation and storage but never found the affordable solution. I have a hanging larder but a couple of days is my maximum duration due to typical weather conditions. I seem to get deer either in a hot spell or when the carcass is in danger of freezing on the gimbals. I was discussing the matter with my stalking partner who said it is not rocket science to supply a purpose built fridge unit. He specializes in refrigeration. The sides could clip together, the fridge unit would be self contained to bolt onto one of the walls. Three hours start to finish should be all that is required for assembly, Plug into the mains and you have an ideal situation. I know that sounds rather simplistic but these units would be designed to be portable. Due to these being transported flat packed they would be ideal for cull work. Now the question is would anyone be interested? What design features would you like incorporated? It is simple to vary the sizes to suit need. Would you require delivery and assembly or could you take delivery from Pallet line for self assembly? This post is a bit of market research really. If there is sufficient interest I will get facts and prices sorted out. I believe soon the refrigeration of carcasses will not be an option for small and large game, best practice guides recommend 4°C for small game and 7°C for large, entering the food chain. That is the direction these things are heading. DMG's will have to have a central refrigerated storage point. If this goes ahead they will be advertised on SD and admin will get his fee plus a donation per unit sold.
