First is removing the flank, then the short loin, then the inside round, then the rump/sirloin, Then the knuckle (sirloin tip), then the bottom round/eye, then the femur, then bone out the shank and remove it from the hook. Simple!

I used to break a dozen forequarters and a dozen hindquarters every day, hang the parts on meat trees, then processing what was needed for retail cuts before lunch. After lunch (30 min) did pork, chicken, lamb, ham, mutton, fish, then clean up, plus making grinds every two hours and cutting up frozen New Zealand blocks for the next day's grinds. The Meat Life!
