Not all the carcass is fit for human consumption. Apart from the meat being the different cuts of beef, what happens to the parts that are inedible? It is true that some of the parts are in edible by-products. Here we are focusing on non-edible. Rather than wasting these products they can be used to make or help make non-edible products.
