Just want to give a friendly reminder to all our processing customers here, especially newer ones.
When the livestock producer brings in your animal for us to process it is your responsibility to contact us to discuss your cutting instructions and how you want your meat cut and packaged. Producers reading this need to inform your people that they need to call or message us about their instructions. We are here Monday through Friday 8:00-5:00 and Saturday 8:00-Noon, but we do take a break for lunch at 12:00-12:30 each weekday.
If you are a repeat customer we have your information on file and you do not need to contact us unless you want to make specific changes. We appreciate all of our customers, new and old, and thank you for putting your trust in us for your meat processing needs. Our phone number is 217-452-3072 and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanks again and enjoy your Spring and upcoming Summer.
Wrapped up this year's Coyote Hunt this afternoon. 14 more coyotes checked in bringing the total to 31 Coyotes for both weekends.
One team brought in 27 total and won the prize money for Largest and Smallest. We ended up raising $325.00 for the Food Pantry and want to thank each and every hunter who registered and participated. We will see you all again next year.
Had 17 coyotes checked in this afternoon. Next Sunday January 23 will be the final Check-In from 3:00-4:00PM.
See you then.
A big Thank You to all the hunters who signed up for the Coyote Hunt this weekend. Be safe and whack some yotes.
Our Annual Coyote Hunt for the Cass County Food Pantry is coming up soon.
The Hunt this year will be on two weekends like we have been doing, to allow for potential winter storms and what not.
Times and dates are as follows:
First Weekend Hunt will start on Friday January 14th at 5:00 PM and conclude with the Weigh-In on Sunday January 16th at 3:00 PM.
Second Hunt will start on Friday January 21 at 5:00 PM and conclude on Sunday January 23rd at 3:00 PM at the Final Weigh-In.
Entry Fees will be $25.00 per hunter and that allows you to hunt either or both weekends. Prize money will be awarded for Largest Coyote and Smallest Coyote at the Check-In on Sunday afternoon January 23rd.
Prize Money will be 25% of the total Entry Fees for Largest and 25% of Total Entry Fees for Smallest with 50% of the Total Entry Fees going to the Cass County Food Pantry.
CM European Mounts is also going to donate $100.00 to the winner with the Largest Coyote and $100.00 to the winner with the Smallest Coyote. Registration begins on Monday January 3rd and ends at Noon on Saturday January 15. If you have not paid the Entry Fees and Registered by Noon on Saturday January 15th do not show up at the Weigh-In either weekend. Two weeks is plenty of time to stop in and get signed up. Registration will be during regular business hours Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 and Saturday 8:00-Noon. Thank You for all your past support and please share this information with anyone you think may be interested.
Good Luck and Be Safe.

We will be Closed from Christmas Eve December 24 through Sunday January 2 and re-open an Monday January 3.
We appreciate your patronage and trust you place in us as your local Small Town Family Owned Custom Meat Processor.
Enjoy your time with Family and Friends and have a Merry and Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year !
Found time to work in some extras on Saturday.
Beef Sticks $7.00 per Pound
Regular Summer Sausage $6.00 per pound
Jalapeno & Cheese Summer Sausage $7.00 per pound.
Get them while you can.
Hope you all are enjoying your Thanksgiving Day.
Quick notice that each and every European Mount is finished and ready to be picked up. All of them, even the ones brought in Tuesday and Wednesday. Please get them as soon as you possibly can because we received a bunch and will need to free up the space.
We are open Tomorrow 8:00-5:00 and Saturday 8:00-Noon.
Please bring $75.00 cash if you haven't already pre-paid.
Thank You so much. Enjoy your day with family and friends.
Just had a few heads dropped off for European Mounts. We will accept heads during regular business hours all throughout the remainder of the Deer Seasons. $75.00 cash money. Thank You.
This is a post from 2020 but still works.
We are taking heads for European Mounts all throughout Deer Season including Archery Season. $75.00 each cash money. Turnaround varies but is always less than a week.
I will be here Tomorrow, Sunday November 21, 2021 from 1:00 -1:30 PM to take in heads for European mounts.
We also accept them during regular business hours Monday through Friday 8:00-5:00 and Saturday 8:00-Noon.
Keep em coming folks. We can handle your European Mounts no problem.
$75.00 each. Quick turnaround.
The Heads are rolling in hot and heavy for European Mounts! Rut must be cranking right now for sure. We do European Mounts for $75.00 and the turn around time right now is normally 3-5 days depending on what day it is dropped off. Thanks and Good Luck out there.
Quick Notice that although we are NOT processing deer this year we are still doing European Mounts as we have for the last several years. The cost is still $75.00 and they will be nice and clean like the ones in these photos. Turn around time is usually 2-3 days.
These are the two banners we planned on using Saturday but will now use somewhere else instead. We will not be silenced forever by low IQ mobs of local nitwits who somehow have attained positions of authority in this County.
Had to turn off commenting on this post due to a band of lunatics who are mentally unable to engage in civil or serious discourse.
My apologies but the world is full of crazy people unfortunately.
Well, not really wanting to post this but we need to let everyone know Cass Meats will NOT be processing deer this year. NOT Archery Season and NOT Firearm Season. We are way way overbooked on our beef/cattle slaughter dates and there is no feasible way to work deer processing into our schedule.
The Meat Shortage and Panic due to the COVID craziness during April and May of 2020 has created a very unique situation in our business and we are unsure of when or if things will go back to how they used to be.
We know this may make it inconvenient for many or most of our deer hunter friends and customers and we apologize for the trouble and inconvenience.
We will still do European mounts like we have been so feel free to bring in those heads and we will gladly take care of that for you.
Good luck on your hunting adventures and be safe. Thank You.
Nice biased cover photo JC.
VIRGINIA — A Cass County business is planning a medical freedom rally Monday at Cass...
Please share the post concerning our (No Masks Medical Freedom)Policy and then go to our Rally for Medical Freedom Event post and share that on your pages also.
Help us spread the word and Let Freedom Ring !
Cass Meats wants to Inform Our Customers and the General Public We Will NOT be enforcing any Unlawful Mask Mandates Here and will never ask your Vaccination Status or ask for any test results for any disease or medical condition. You and you alone have the right to make your own medical decisions without threats or coercion from Government Officials or local business people.
It is about time for those nasty little gnats to show up. We have what it takes to help you survive their evil torments.
Don't let those nasty little biting bastards ruin your fun this Spring. The famous Vanilla Bug Spray is here and for sale at $7.00 per bottle.
Folks, we aren't playing games and making up stuff when we tell you we are Booked FULL. We can take your information and get in touch with you if there are cancellations, but we honestly can only do so much slaughter and processing.
Another thing, if you have a Slaughter Date booked and can't bring in your animal or animals, DO NOT tell your friend or neighbor and then they bring something in. The Kill Date is NOT a "Concert Ticket" that you can share with someone in the event you can't make it or change your mind. Let us know that you have to cancel and we will work our customers in for that date. I know these are difficult times and we are all in uncharted territory, but let's use some common sense and try to make the best of the situation. Thank You.
The Coyote Hunt is over for this year. Hunter numbers were way down but for those who did hunt the two weekends they killed a total of 20 coyotes! Great job fellas. Hopefully next year we can get back to a bigger and better Coyote Hunt. The entry fees will be donated to the Food Pantry. Thank you to all who participated!
Here are the photos from the First Weekend of the Coyote Hunt. There is still time to sign up and participate in this coming weekend's Hunt. I will be out at Cass Meats at 4:00 PM for the Weigh-In Sunday January 17. See ya then.

About the Annual Coyote Hunt, I'm not seeing that as likely this time. Local businesses who helped sponsor the previous hunts are probably suffering from Pritzker's COVID tyranny and without business sponsors and t-shirt sales I don't think the Hunter entrance fees will cover the prize money and leave much left over for The Food Pantry honestly. We do appreciate the past support and if you all insist on wanting to do the Hunt anyway I may reconsider. No promises though.
We are going to be closed for Vacation from December 24-January 3 and will reopen on Monday January 4. If you have a deer here that we have processed you need to pick that up before Thursday, including the European Mounts. But, being the sweet wonderful guy I am, I will slip away from my Vacation Time and come in here from 10:00 - Noon Saturday morning December 26 for those of you who simply can't make it before Thursday and don't want to wait almost two weeks. Thank You and have a very Merry Christmas.
We are announcing that Cass Meats will be CLOSED for VACATION beginning December 24 and we will re-open on Monday January 4, 2021. Trust me, there is no business anywhere and no workers anywhere who deserve a Vacation Break more than we do. 🙂
We thank you for your patronage, support, and trust.
Enjoy the Holiday Season and do not cheat yourself by staying away from family and friends out of fear and worry. Celebrate Christmas as always and be of good cheer.
Attention all First Season Hunters who had deer processed here. Everything is done and ready to be picked up. Snack sticks, summer sausage, European Mounts....everything. Our hours are 8:00 - 7:00 Friday and 8:00-7:00 Saturday.

cheese & Jalapenos $2.99 per pound. While it last.

The Second Firearm Season starts Tomorrow. We will be open until 6:00 PM Thursday and 7:00 PM both Friday and Saturday. Closed Sunday. We will not accept deer after 7:00 PM Saturday evening and we may fill up before then. We had a big Beef Kill Yesterday and another Big Beef Kill coming up next Tuesday and we can only put so many deer in our coolers when we have Beef in there too.
Happy hunting, hope you all get a good one.
Times are changing and we have to keep up with the changes in the Industry....so....effective immediately these will be our new processing and slaughter rates and fees.
Beef Kill ...$95.00
Beef Kill Only....$200.00
Processing..... 75 cents per pound (carcass weight)
Patties ....75 cents per pound
Tenderizing...75 cents per pound
Beef divided into quarters ( half of a half ) and processed and wrapped differently will be an extra 5 cents per pound.
Beef or hogs not picked up within 3 weeks after processing (and notified it is ready) will incur an extra charge unless previous arrangements have been made before processing.
We thank you for your business and support and I think you will find our rates are still extremely competitive as always.
We are Officially FULL on Deer and will not be accepting deer again until December 3 during the 2nd Firearm Season.
We will still be accepting heads for European Mounts through the rest of the year during regular business hours. Thank you and have a Blessed Thanksgiving next week.
