A half hog would be VERY ROUGHLY $458 and yield around 73 lbs of meat.
This breaks down to roughly $6.30/lb for the packaged pork.
A HALF hog would yield something around:
2 shoulder roasts
1 spare ribs
4-5 lbs bacon
17-18 center chops
8 end chops
8-10 pork steaks
8-10 ham steak
10 – 15 lb sausage
It should take up about 3.5 cubic feet of freezer space.
We feed our hogs:
• Certified organic feed,
• Hay from our own land,
• Eggs from our organic-fed chickens
• A small amount of leftover fruits vegetables as a little treat (some organic, and some not).
They are raised in a small herd. They have an old-style pig pen with a shelters and a yard where they like to wallow and play around and sometimes sleep under the stars on nice nights. We don’t give them hormones or routine antibiotics. In the rare even that animal becomes sick or injured, I follow the vet’s instructions and wait twice as long as is recommended before butchering.
