If you’re going to be slaughtering and butchering livestock this fall, you need to know the basics. Here is a great book that we used when we first moved out to the Valley to raise some animals. Basic Butchering of Livestock and Game has proven to be a great reference tool for us every year.
We bought it when we first moved here and still use it for information. Some pages are kinda dog-eared, blood stained and even falling out, which I guess shows just how good a reference book it is!
If you’re homesteading or hunting, you may want to give it a read. Learn how and when to kill, slaughter and butcher, plus how to field dress game. There are lots of illustrations and step by step processes included. Basic Butchering even includes some recipes for you to try.
