Weve been ranching in Tonto Basin since the 1860s. The tradition is still alive despite the forest service and liberal city folk trying their hardest to keep an honest way of life from continuing. Beef at its finest my Friends. He will hang for a couple weeks then off to the butcher block. We do it all from start to finish. Cheers!55403

Let it hang for 28 days. Noticeable difference in the taste and quality of the beef.

Butchered our first hog this year. We live in suburbia so I didn't have a place to slaughter, we just bought from a butcher shop them butchered ourselves.

It was fun, and I'm sure the meat is better than we get from the store. We made our own sausage and soon I'll be making my own bacon.

We have been considering buying a half of a cow to butcher...just haven't done it yet.

Good on ya for sticking to your land and your livelihood. I'm sure it's not easy, but if nothing else it is indeed an honest way of life.

A good American life for sure.

Keep up the fight against governmental and liberal encroachment, there are fewer and fewer ranches left with each passing generation.

Electronic screen urban kids dont even know what a ranch is.

Last fall we butchered an old cow that stopped calving and was so wild and crazy it about killed us trying to get her shipped. Dads big tractor barely could lift it high enough to get her nose off the ground. We grinded her all up in to hamburger except for some of the leanest cuts which we made jerky out of. Was a good day- just about the whole family showed up. Reminded me of the hog killings we had growing up. Between Grandpa, Uncles and us we killed about 10 0r 12 a year. Good times, good food, and good memories.

Bought a 1/2 a cow this year, weighed 412 lbs.

Cost me after everything $5 a pound, can't beat it.

The best part is busting coyotes off the gut pile. Grade A excitement! Thinking about NV or Thermal and a can to throw off triangulation. We can’t shoot them at night in this unit...

I’m proud of my heritage and glad to know I’m always in like company on WT.
