wow - - much cheaper online.
I wonder why?
$70 Aus a kg,, :stop I have booked the home kill for the 29th, killing a steer and a couple of lambs, its the brothers steer so he will grab a half, Im thinking about doing a pig as well . I have a nice Berkshire sow. I'll see if hes interested in skinning it over the usual rigmarole..

I couldn't do that.
Are you allowed to butcher your own meat in NZ?
No problem, you can do it yourself, but I prefer to get in a licensed home killer, He comes to the prop kills the animal guts and skins it, and drops it off to a butcher of your choice, $150 for the cow and $20 each for the lambs, He gives you a butchering sheet from the butcher , so you can pick your cuts , sausages , mince, salami etc, and you pay the butcher for the processing
That's a bit nicer.
I prefer to get my meat at the supermarket in pretty, sealed, plastic packets. :oops:

The last cow he killed I kept the head and cut the cheeks out of it, they made a tasty stew :scare

Beef cheeks are great when cooked long and slow like a stew.

Somebody mention stew???

Well ... I'm online atm trying to source a rabbit or 2.

My neighbour 2 doors away (who's from Sparta) wants to show me how to prep and cook up a good hearty European styled rabbit stew. 😎
I would rather die than sell my heart and soul to an online forum Anti Christ like you Monk

Probably why I'm able to be a little more objective
