We got hungry and was running low on groceries so it was time to fill the void. We butchered a steer that we raised. He was about 14 months old. Our neighbors came over also yesterday to help. We estimate we got 300lbs of meat out of the fella. Nothing like raising your own animal and sending it to freezer camp in your own freezer. You know everything that went into the animal and you can cut it up like you want. We dont have fancy saws to make all the pretty cuts so we just send most of the meat through the grinder after boning it all out.
Now we are saving some money and when your saving money your making money. We estimate at the time of this post we will save $225+ a month at the grocery store and $40+ a month at the feed store.
Now to start raising another one for next year and hopefully be butchering some pigs soon to help fill the freezer.
