That's what you do to dead animals!
Dismembering is another possibility, but I'm just saying that to cover my tracks. :-)

primal cutting

Säge für Zerlegearbeit

Circular-Breaking-Saw for general cutting purposes for medium and high throughput plants

http://www.argus.co.nz/mainmenu64/cat170/Freund Tools/p712/K...

The Jarvis Model MCS 260 -- multi-purpose pneumatically powered breaking saw.
• The MCS 260 with a full 2 hp motor and a maximum 4 3/8 inch (111 mm) depth of cut is ideally suited for primal cutting of:
• beef: forequarters, chucks, shoulders, briskets.
• pork: chine bones and ham markings.
• beef and sheep horns

After the carcasses are chilled (unless "hot-boned"), primary butchery consists of selecting carcasses, sides, or quarters from which primal cuts can be produced with the minimum of wastage, separate the primal cuts from the carcasses using the appropriate tools and equipment

A primal cut is a piece of meat initially separated from the carcass during butchering. Different countries and cultures make these cuts in different ways, and primal cuts also differ between type of carcass. The British, American and French primal cuts all differ in some respects. A notable example is fatback, which in Europe is an important primal cut of pork, but in North America is regarded as trimmings to be used in sausage or rendered into lard. The primal cuts may be sold complete or cut further.

Splitting is "dividing the carcass in half longitudinally" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butcher
