Ven Sir
Thank you for clarifying this for me again.
I oversighted your first comment.

“Trading in meat means, having raised pigs or deer, etc., he sells them.”

Now this is clear for me without any doubt.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Having raised pigs, one sells them. This is what selling meat means, a wrong livelihood. If someone cooks meat, cut meat, I assume this is not wrong livelihood as per the meaning of the letter but does cutting meat e.g. chicken breast fillet and cooking meat are actually create bad kamma? Any reply would be great. Thank you.

Say if you see a dead dear (fresh) in the street hit by a car.
Say you have noting else to eat.
You bring the dead dear home and cook and eat it.
I do not think it is bad kamma.
It is bad kamma if you eat the whole dear in one go because of greediness. (but it is a different kind of bad kamma)
