Things are getting crazy before processing was about the same as the price of the hog now it $100 more for the basic cut and wrap with hams, sausage and bacon smoked. I bought 2 packs of black label bacon last month $9 a packageover a pound I thought that was kind of high LOL

Processing was $100+ over the price of the hog it was a lot closer in the past she will check if thatís right when she picks it up.

Pork butt and loin makes good cured meat.

What Gary Benson said. Can cut the loin into chops. Can cook as pork roast. Can cook pork butt (shoulder) for pulled pork, cut steaks off the boneless part, cure the bonless part and cut down for bacon, bone out the shoulder blade and grind for sausage.

Just ordered a pig from a local farmer and filled out a cut sheet. He says $600 to $625 Butchered and vac sealed. He even delivers it to you. I have not bought a pig before and have no idea what an average weight finished would be.

Around here the run on it is due to everyone making their own venison sausage. I would think in a few weeks here the price should go down.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Grandkids are in 4H and they like the hogs at least 300# maybe a little more.

Charles2 there are some variables but youíd be lucky to get 50 percent of live weight back in packages, and that would include bone, but if I understand correct that price includes processing and possible delivery so thatís not a horrible price.

That's about two bucks a lb which ain't a bad deal if it's good pork.

Yes, that price includes everything. So, 150lbs or in that ballpark. I understand that is no guarantee. Just was wondering so I have enough freezer space. Might have to gift some to my family, but I am good with that too.

Seems a little high to me, but I haven't bought a pig for a while. If it weighs 300lbs (that's a big one), you will likely end up with maybe 150lbs of meat. That's around $4.00 per pound.
