Today was a busy day for my Dad, brother and me.
We do our slaughtering and butchering this time of year. Last week it was a pig, this week it was this poor fellas' turn.

Right before he was gutted.

At the end of the day.

He will age for three weeks in the cooler and it will be time to butcher.

Do you raise the animal yourself or buy them?

What do you do with all the meat? Is it for your own consumption, or do you sell it?

Yes we raise our own animals. The meat from these animals are for our own personal consumption. The difference between a family farm raised and butchered animal as opposed to a corporation farm raised animal that has gone through the slaughter houses and processing plants is truly amazing.

Super nice! I'd love to see "action pics" of breaking down the carcass into primals and final cuts.

I second this.

Very nice, And I'm sure the difference in farm raised VS store bought is huge.

Very true. Was fortunate that some former clients in rural east San Diego county raised beef, poultry and pigs. I took payment in cuts as often as I could. Despite being a meat cutter in a restaurant for the better part of a decade, and having access to some really good commercially raised beef, those cuts were the best meat I have ever tasted. Turkey as out of the world too.
