VT Agency of Agriculture Processing Flow Chart (PDF)
One note: At about 46:25 into the recording, Randy answered a question about whether a farmer selling multiple animals to multiple buyers--who all made their own on-farm slaughter arrangements--can then transport the animals to a processing facility as a group?  After Randy's recorded response, he sent some additional clarification afterward, "...[the farmer would] have to have a signed certificate at the processor's in order for the custom processor to accept the carcasses… so the farmer would have to get blank certificates from the processor and have each owner sign them and then bring them with the carcasses."
