Side of Beef or Whole Pig, Lamb, Etc

Is it a good deal to get a Side of Beef, Whole Pig, etc.

You need to educate yourself prior to purchasing a whole beef, side of beef, whole pig, whole lamb, etc.  It is almost like buying a car - do your research, talk to a local butcher about cuts, talk to the farmer about cuts, ask for prices up front, estimated yields, any additional costs that would be involved - labeling, vacuum packaging, fresh or frozen, pick up or delivery.

I spend a lot of time educating folks on the cuts to get when purchasing whole and 1/2 carcass animals.  From ground chuck to Bone in Steaks, roasts, stew, tallow, tongue, kidneys, livers, etc.  If you feed a raw diet to your pets you will make out like bandits as you will obtain a higher yield of the carcass than most could think of. 

If you are looking at buying a whole carcass - do the research first.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions.


Stillwater and Channel 5 News

I Got Interviewed

To think, I was out on deliveries in Stillwater and Channel 5 News stopped me and asked a bunch of questions - I failed to spell my Simple first name (Steve) and was put on the air last night as Teve.  At least I was on the news for something positve and not negative - seemws that is all we see lately on the news - how bad everything is.  We need some good news sometime as well.
