    My freezer is full....of Beef.....just picked up half a cow....
    Our horses entertainment for the summer is now in the freezer...our neighbour usually butchers a couple of heads each fall this year we decided to get a half because my teenager is now a carnivour .....How much do you pay for a pound of beef? We paid $2.80 this year...limosine(sp) cattle ..... pasture fed (nice pasture)with some grain towards the end......worth every penny.....
    MODS.....Wasnt sure where to put this one??

    Ohhh guys your making me so hungry [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have been begging my grandpa to fence off his 50 acres. But He isn't budging with the idea.. I wouldn't mind caring for them as long as he does the butchering..

    I moonlight for a ranch and eat very good beef. The trouble is I could not do what you did. Once it hits my own property it becomes a pet in like a nano second. I would like to fatten up a steer, but I know that we would not be able to eat "Bossie". Now... please pass the taters. [​IMG]

    Quote:i traded beef and pork! have someone who wants to trade wood for chicken too.

    we do it even, with the meat. pound for pound and i can give them any poultry i have available. we just keep tally. works out very well.

    having big, huge, honking pork steaks tonight with green beans and potatoes cooked with a smoked ham hock. and of course a lovely cornbread.

    my kids seriously wont eat meat from the store anymore.
