One of our most exciting farming story’s, newly planted cauliflower field when a military tank crash landed in it and dumped 9,000 gallon of jet fuel.

Did you do all the butchering yourself? I was debating on getting pigs but didn't know what it'd take to butcher them or take them to a butcher.

188lbs of pork, 430 of beef (only half of a steer)
damn! I've been wanting to stock my newly purchased deep freezer. That's a lot of meat!

My parents have now had three cows butchered. It's awesome being able to go into the deep freeze and pull out whatever you want

Yes, my dad was butcher by trade and I have all his tools but I don’t have a freeze to hang meat until I cut it but I have a friend that does and then finish it from there.

My cost in the freezer is about 3.00 bucks a pound on the beef and about 1.30 per pound on the pork.

That's good pricing. My parents farm their butchering out and it comes to $4.something/lb

Last weekend my wife forgot close the coop to her 14 chickens and a dog came through sometime between dusk and 10:30 and killed 13 for sport. Our front yard looked like a war zone. Our 1 rooster made it and is super lonely, currently Looking for a couple old hens to keep him company while the chicks we have in the garage grow up.
