And on the processors... You know those guys are hooking theirself up with the best tenderloin etc.... Or their buddies with a couple pounds here and there.. They dont buy meat from the store ever..
i have my choice of 2 processors. the one guy ALWAYS has summer sausage and jerky for sale. not supposed to sell it, but. always wondered where the meat come from. lol. the other guy i use seems to be pretty up and up. he weighs them when they come in and you should get about 35% of the live weight back in meat. hogs are alittle less, about 33% . he seems to do me right. been using the same guy for about 9 years and my coolers are always pretty full when i pick up my deer.
