Looking For A Butcher In Massachusetts - Page 2

post #11 of 15

If you are proud to raise your own, you should slaughter your own. You don't know how humane a butcher will be. The butcher was not the owner and you are likely to do the best job. If I were you, I'd get myself a book that explains explicitly and step by step how to slaughter and butcher my own. I personally don't trust anybody and I always do my my own. By the way, if you slow cook your rooster, it will be delish, even if it is 3 years old! I mean about 5 hours at 200 degrees! Also, check your rooster for mites. Sometimes, they are so infested that they hurt real bad and they get mean...

Welcome to BYC!.

 

 

When I started raising livestock I was not ready to process my own. As a matter of fact loading day was a real stressor-- for ME!! Un loading was quick and efficient.  If they over nighted, they were bedded down with hay and water. IT took 25 more years to consider butchering my own . . .and someone to show me know. 

 

Hope you enjoy BYC!!

I am sorry but I didn't understand your response, about loading and un loading... Is that a way to raise animals? I was just trying to help with my reply about butchering a rooster...

Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to expand on your opinion on who butchers  . . . loading refers to loading the truck for delivery to a good butcher.  ANd how well cared for the animals were while waiting their turn.   As the OP was looking for a butcher in Masss . . . .
