The amount of meat that a grinder can process per minute is not just a function of motor size, but also of the auger configuration, hopper size, and internal elements such as the number of blades on the knife and the size of the grinding discs. Suffice it to say that you should compare grind rates carefully when assessing your needs. One deer, a few ducks, and maybe a wild hog per year are manageable for even the most basic grinder. Beyond that, capacity could become an issue. Just remember that the greater the capacity, usually the bulkier the machine and the more storage space it takes up.
