Who do you go to for home killing of your livestock? There is no way I would have the stomach or nerve to kill a sheep or cow for our own use but have no idea if its legal to do it at home or get someone in or take the beast somewhere else to have it done or what! When we get more land we are hoping to grow our own meat but if I keep putting the inevitable off, the kids will give them all a name and they will become pets!!! We have chooks coming out of our ears because we cant do the job and yes they all have names!!! Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!!!! :tup: BTW I have no husband to do the job either so that’s not an option!
most (I would imagine – there are at least 3 here) country areas have people who come out to your place and home kill for freezer –
and that is probably the full extent of my knowledge lol
next door get them in for the freezer animals
Can you ask around your area for home butchers,even retired ones might help.
Do you have a trusted butcher who could help organise the business of killing the animals.
We have taken cows and pigs to the abottoir but we can do them at home.We usually do our own sheep.
We have a band-saw and hanging room where all that takes place.
I dont stick around for the gory part I only help with the cutting up and packing away.
Google Mobile butchers they will come to your property and do it all for you. Or you can take it to the abbs and arrange to have it delivered to a butcher they will break it up how you want it.
Thanks for the info guys !!! I now feel confident about growing our own meat 🙂
Lots of great advice above. Most places do have a mobile butcher these days. Another option if you cant find one close enough is there may be a capable farmer or person close by who is happy to do a trade for some of the meat. We do our own pigs, sheep, ducks, geese, rabbits, but have found in the past if we were really busy that there was always someone happy to come and help for a trade in the meat. Just another thought.
