General understanding on how to slaughter the Animals
shachat (שׁחט) KJV use inappropriate word "kill"
Even though Elohim prescribed the slaughtering of animals for sacrifice and for food, the treatment ofanimals is of the utmost importance. The Talmud describes with minute care and detail how an animal is to be slaughtered for food, and the regulations are given mainly because of the desire to inflict as painless a death as possible. The slaughterer could not be a deaf-mute, or a minor, and he must be of sound mind (Chul. 1. 1). The knife must be perfectly smooth without the slightest perceptible notch and "the knife must be tested as to its three sides upon the flesh of the finger and upon the nail" (ibid. 17b).
There are five causes of disqualification (ibid. 9a).
 Shehiyah means Delay, the one who slaughter must be a continuous forward and backward motion of the knife without any interruption.
 Derasah means Pressure, the cut must be made gently, without the exercise of any force.
 Chaladah means digging, the knife must not be inserted into the flesh instead of drawn across the throat.
 Hagramah means Slipping, that is the cut must not be made except through a prescribed section of the neck.
 Ikkur means Tearing, that is the cut must be done without dislocating the windpipe or gullet. Any one of these actions would render the animal unfit for consumption, because it would have inflicted pain upon the animal.
In the Talmud teaches proper care of animals and a love and respect for them.They were to be properly fed (p. Jeb. 14d), and "a man must not eat his meal before giving food to his cattle (Ber. 40a). This was taken from the ToRaH Scripture:
"And He will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and then you shall eat and be satisfied." Devarim 11:5
The Talmud teaches man to praise the animals because they are models for mankind to imitate. "Had theToRaH not been given to us for our guidance, we could not have learnt modesty from the cat, honesty from the ant, chastity from the dove, and good manners from the cock" (Erub. 100b). YHWH (יהוה) Elohim taught Mosheh to care for sheep before he would care for and lead his fellow man (Shemot. 11:2)
