Butcher tables are used to butcher fresh (not rotten) corpses into meat and leather. Colonists assigned to cooking will butcher creatures, after they have finished all regular cooking tasks. Butchering requires 450 ticks (7.5 secs) of work, modified by the butchery speed of the cook and up to two nearby tool cabinets.
The yield of butchering depends on the following factors:
- The base yields of the animal
- The butchery efficiency of the cook
- The maturity stage of the animal.
- A 66% multiplier for damaged corpses i.e. any animal not tamed and then cleanly slaughtered.
- A percentage multiplier for lost body parts.
The Butcher Creature bill defaults to include all animals and exclude humanoids, but can be configured. The bill configuration can also restrict ingredients by hit points by adjusting the minimum and maximum sliders.
Butchering a human will inflict a −6 mood penalty to colonists on the map, and a stacking −6 penalty to the butcher. Colonists with the cannibal, bloodlust, or psychopath traits, or colonists following a suitable ideoligion, are immune to both moodlets.
Butcher tables and butcher spots can be used to create kibble. Compared to the butcher spot, the butcher table offers more kibble from the same ingredients.

Each butcher table is considered dirty with a Cleanliness of −15, applied to the bottom-left-most tile from the player's perspective, regardless of orientation. This reduces the average cleanliness of the room it occupies.
Butcher tables are cheap, require no research, and offer a substantial boost to your butchering yield. If you are in any way reliant on meat for food, then you should make a butchering table ASAP.
As they are dirty and actively create filth, butcher tables should be placed outside of your kitchen, unless the kitchen is large enough to not risk the average cleanliness dropping below the -2 required to chance food poisoning. Optimally, it should be placed near your kitchen, just not in the same room. You can place it in the freezer, though note that temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F), i.e. all temperatures that refrigerate or freeze foods, will inflict a work speed penalty.
