    Default Just packed up and labelled 120kg of beef...

    ...man its hard work! Well not nearly as hard as it was for the butcher to clean it and break it down - but it's just soooooooooooo much meat.

    All in the freezer now - should do us for the next 12mths.

    yeh half a cow - we went halves with someone else and got one slaughtered. It will last us ages, we don't eat heaps of meat but don't really like buying from shops. This way we know the cows was treated well and all that jazz. Nice quality too and its works out to about $6 per kilo.

    We went thirds in a cow and pig 6months ago and still have so much meat in our freezer, so worth it, my weekly shops are like $50 without having to buy meat! (with the exclusion of getting any other meat and veg delivered by aussie farmers)

    we grew 2 pigs about 18mths ago - we just weren't getting through them so ended up giving heaps away but still had sooo much.

    Its godo though, it makes you get smart about which cuts you use to make what to ensure you don't waste anything.

    I don't envy you.
    I hate it when I visit the parentals and I go to the back cool room to get a drink and there is an animal carcass hanging in there or dad is cutting one up and mum is bagging it.
    Sometimes, the first sign of carnage when I arrive is their little dog hooning around the side of the house with a fresh heart hanging out of his mouth. Erk.
