    The wife canned some of the 3 turkey's we put up.. A buddy a work was telling me his wife has got her 2nd wind and was wearing him out, LOL, I told him mine said where are we going to put all this food ? We laughed at the sad problems we're experiencing.. Today is butcher day and we'll be putting up what we have left of 76 meat chickens..

    You lose about 60% of the total live weight. 40% right off the bat and then another 20% due to dehydration while hanging and trimming during processing. Us city folk don't know that generally until we go and buy a beef.

    I butchered a 400 lb young cow yesterday. 2 ice chests of meat on ice.
    I took one roast last night when I got home with the meat and made a rub with Tender quick , Cajun seasoning, black pepper , salt and brown sugar.
    10 hours in the fridge then into the crock pot for 11 hours on low.
    WOW!
    You can't cut it across the grain it just falls apart. Excellent flavor needs nothing but a fork or fingers.

    Our said date is August 3 2021 for a calf that should be ready after the 1st of the year.. I'm told if you talk to the processor about taking a cancellation you may get in earlier.. We'll be building a cold room in due time..

    DO NOT leave the Rub with TenderQuick on the Beef for more than 12 hours.
    I left one roast rubbed down for 21 days and it turned into a salt lick.
    Terrible!
