Getting some freezer meat

Neighbors came over and we butchered us a hog. Estimated live weight was 400lbs. We are figuring conservatively and with that said we imagine we got 50% live weight in freezer meat which put approximately 200lbs of pork in the freezer. Considering we do not have all the best processing tools we end up boning out a lot of the meat for meat chunks and sausage (we prefer pan sausage). Also we have very few large cuts as we have to make sure everything fits in our food saver bags.

 

 

Having a tractor and pallet forks makes butchering animals so much easier.

Having a sawzall and turning the blade upside down makes cutting the breast and back bone easy.
