We just got back a bull that we had processed. (He was to large for us to handle here at home) His live weight was a little over 1600 lbs. and we got back a little over 800 lbs. meat.I am looking to buy a half of hog ( American Guinea Hog ) if a half of hog weighs 70 pounds hanging what will the finished processed half weigh?
We always say ... half. If you are calling hanging weight before butcher (?)
What is the price of hogs today?
You would need to check your local ag report. (livestock market)
On this one they did... It depends on the hide if I want it back or not. In the past on large animals, that would be hard for us to handle, it is about a $60. difference in price. The black Jersey bull, I wanted his hide back and had to pay a little more to get it back. But they gave the hide the first "cleaning" ... which made it easy for us to tan.Did the processor keep the skin for tanning?
