A commercial establishment where animals are butchered and dressed for food or market?

Some zoning regs have one word for the definition: "slaughterhouse".

[obscure simpsons reference]

Dr. Marvin Monroe: "A, abattoir: slaughterhouse; The cow was killed in the abattoir."

Homer: "Lamentably no, my gastronomic rapacity knows no satiety."

[/obscure simpsons reference]

to echo the others: slaughterhouse.
