Seriously! Hope you had lots of help. I get worn out doing just two or three.
There were 4 of us. We used a couple of fork lifts from the farm shop to hang them from the forks. Still a lot of work to dress and cape out.
Please tell me you kept at least one pork shoulder to make pulled pork. :mrgreen:
Yep, 2 for me. :-)
It seems to me that what is basically "free range" pork oughta be as good or better than farm-raised, given what THOSE pigs eat!?

My wife had "feral pork" and said it was good. I never have. Are there any diseases one has to worry about? I heard it can't be distributed e.g. to the needy because it's not inspected...

:???:
I know that is the law in California, but I think it's different in Texas.
In California wild game can not be processed in the same facility as normal [USDA] meat.
I don't know about the laws in Missouri.

Emu or pork? :evil2:
Of course, I am talking about pigs. Squeezing the oil from an Emu is much too difficult. ;-)

Haven't had any show up since, but we hear from other property owners they're slowly moving in. We had two Emus show up for a couple of years! :lol: One of the fellows on the lease had a place in Flatonia and he was plagued with them and kept his pastures torn up continually. He let a man trap them to sell as free range pork to the organic crowd. "rlol" He had the perfect set up for them with three lakes and large grassy pastures that he kept watered.
Pastured lard is a big seller too.
