I hate to post such a general question. We need some help with home butchering. We are currently paying .80 / lb plus a 30.00 kill fee plus 3.00 a gallon to and from the butcher. Itâs really starting to add up and Iâd like to lean how to butcher myself. Iâd like to know of any books, videos or web sites that may be a help. Or any tips I could get right here about any part of the process or tools Iâd need. Iâd really like to get some hands on learning but most people around here (Northern IL) just take their meat for processing. Iâd love to learn this and teach my kids to do it for themselves. I'd travel a bit to learn if anyone does not mind me and the kids making a mess. Thanks for any ideas.
