Welcome to Iowa Meat Company Inc

We are your local butchery and one stop meat shop known as ‘State Center Locker’. We custom process locally raised beef, hogs, lamb, and goats. We cater to the avid hunter by processing wild game and venison. We have been locally owned and operated for over 75 years. You can be confident in our staff of butchers and meat cutters, who have years of experience processing livestock, to process your meat the way you want it. Our retail area offers a variety of beef and pork cuts, along with deli meats and cheeses, bacon, hot dogs, beef snack sticks, summer sausages, and of course, traditional beef strip jerky. We can fill special orders big or small. We pride ourselves on providing large orders of our pork patties, beef patties, and brats for local events, such as the State Center Rose Festival, JBS employee lunches, Marshall County Pork Producers, fundraisers, parties, and the like. We can put together a small meat order, too. If you aren’t sure what you want, our retail clerks can make recommendations based on your needs. Just call us to see what we can do! Iowa Meat Company is your best choice for quality meat, superior service, and affordable prices!

Take a look at our services

Beef

We offer processing for whole, half or split side carcasses; tailored as much to your cutting preferences as possible. Some surcharges may apply for special requests not listed on our cut sheet options.

Pork

Hog processing is for whole or half carcass only. You can have everything processed for fresh cuts only, or do a combination of fresh, smoked, and seasoned product.

Specialty (Lamb)

Lamb is a specialty option, so we prefer whole carcass processing. There are standard cuts we offer, but if something special is requested, we will do our best to make it happen.

Deer

In the past, we have offered deer processing for every "season" of deer hunting, however, this year we will be looking at limiting our intake, so please watch for any Facebook updates we post this fall.
