Today, I took home the wedders/muilt that went to the abattoir last week.
I bought lots of pig and chicken feed as well, so when I came home, I dropped the carcasses off at my parents house and took the feed in to mine.
By the time I’d finished unloading the van and feeding the animals, my parents had put 2 or 3 of them in the freezer already.
The carcasses are butchered in the slaughterhouse. It’s not that long ago we used to butcher them ourselves in the barn. By butcher, I mean chop up, not kill the animals. Here is the cleaver and knife that we use for that, with my size 12s for scale
So the freezers are full and one happy fellow is going to be Bud, who is going to be fed on off-cuts for a while!
