abattoir
A slaughterhouse, also called abattoir (/ˈæbətwɑːr/ (About this soundlisten)), is a facility where animals are slaughtered, most often (though not always) to provide food for humans.[1] Slaughterhouses supply meat, which then becomes the responsibility of a packaging facility.

Slaughterhouses that produce meat that is not intended to be eaten by humans are sometimes referred to as knacker's yards or knackeries. This is where animals are slaughtered that are not fit for human consumption or that can no longer work on a farm, such as retired work horses.
