This senior project discusses the design factors associated with the construction of a portable swine processing machine. The portable swine processing machine is composed of the following stations linked to the entire meat processing system: internal organ removal station, rinsing/cleaning station, skin threshing station, and the refrigeration station. This project goes into depth of the function of each station and how it contributes to the ending result, the consumption of the wild hog. The processing machine meets all sanitation requirements and can be operated safely and efficiently, satisfying the needs of the Breschini & Sons farm.
