With more than forty years of experience butchering domestic animals, game, and birds, award-winning outdoor writer and photographer Monte Burch presents this complete guide for butchering many types of livestock or wild animals.
Learn how to butcher cows, chickens, goats, hogs, deer, turkeys, rabbits, and more, with simple and easy-to-follow, step-by-step photographs and illustrations.
Burch also provides recommendations on which tools (knives, paring knives, meat scissors, meat grinders, shrink-wrappers) to use for the task at hand. He lists detailed instructions on how to butcher each animal and use each part, so nothing goes to waste. Now you’ll be able to prepare meat for salting and curing, freezing, sausage making, and more.
