With the rising popularity of poultry dark meat, poultry processors are looking for better tools to improve yield, throughput and profits. Whizard® Series II Trimmers from Bettcher Industries are uniquely designed for dark meat debone operations – such as whole leg deboning and thigh deboning – that optimize quality while delivering improved yields.
Compared to mechanically deboned poultry dark meat (MDM), our trimmers remove bones and knuckles quickly and efficiency, without bone breaks, splinters or fragments. Our trimmers virtually eliminate time-consuming rework activities and labor-intensive quality control (QC) inspections.
What’s more, our trimmers perform the entire deboning process, whereas with MDB equipment, your workers must perform the additional step of removing broken bones or knuckles that often remain in the meat.
Not only that, the initial equipment purchase costs plus ongoing maintenance costs of MDB machines are dramatically higher compared to using Whizard® Series II Trimmers.
Whizard® Series II Trimmers also deliver higher meat yields – often up to 5% more. The additional dollars quickly add up to measurably better plant performance!
What’s more, our trimmers produce a much better-looking finished product because the cut is cleaner – with no forced separation of bone from the meat – and the tissue is not damaged. The result? An upgraded product that attracts higher profit margins and improves your ROI.
With the Whizard® Line of poultry processing equpment, it’s much easier to monitor yields and productivity at the operator level, rather than having to rely on “macro” measurements such as incoming weight versus finished weight comparisons.
Also, it’s easier to train new workers on our trimmers compared to using a straight knife. Plus, because operating our trimmer is less fatiguing than using a straight knife – with less stress and strain on the wrist – productivity improves.

The new white paper outlines factors to consider when implementing improved dark meat deboning processes. Manual debone production lines, automated deboning equipment, and yield management systems incorporating individual operator tracking and incentive systems are covered, along with comparative performance statistics.
