Stampede Meat’s Butcher Certification Program

Stampede Meat’s Butcher Certification Program encompasses a combination of lecture and hands-on work to help employees develop a rich understanding of meat fundamentals and cutting techniques.

We focus on engaging employees with interactive activities, curriculum supplements, skill challenges, rewards and recognition.

The purpose of this program is twofold and consists of:

  • Training Stampede employees to become certified butchers to improve their understanding of meat fundamentals and butchery skills.
