3 pig processing
« on: March 30, 2018, 07:27:18 PM »
So today we started off with 3 gilts roughly in the 250lb range.

It took us probably 2.5 hrs to process all 3 so they can hang for the night.

Tomorrow is processing day......please ask the father for patience and my sanity please.

Hot dang! We did a pig 2 years back, some real good eats! Wish I were closer to learn to better process. I managed but probably could have been better.

You have a hand in raising them or did you just buy them from the raiser?

No hand, straight from the farm and not a feed lot or commercial barn.

BACON! LOTS OF BACON hanging there.
Interested in hams as well.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.
