price of kill/cut for our babies
« on: November 28, 2011, 06:38:58 pm »
well we went with our 4 boys, 2 girls  to the abbatoir  (thanks Little blue for helping get them in as OH left the feed bucket back at home)

Just spoken to our butcher (as we pay him the kill/cut price)
for the kill and butcher  (bag and labellled)  they are currently charging 10.
they said it was because the price of rhe fleeces is excellent at the moment.

as well as joints, chops etc
they are making mince, mint burgers and mint sausages..... :yum: :yum: :yum:
can't wait

Bargain, I would pay more than this to cover my butcher's slaughter fee (he pays the abbatoir less than I would if I sent them in as a direct customer), never mind the cutting on top.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

I paid 29 at C & S meats here in Dorset, butchered by Blackmore Vale Butchery.  Lovely abattoir though, nice and friendly and great animal welfare

they treat them very well. My butcher collects straight from the abbatoir and he is cheaper for the kill/cut than the abbatoir kill/cut rates. He is also very good as he puts up with all my worries and queries.
The abbatoir are all very good, cheerful calm and supportive (even if they don't want to know their names!!!!  ;))

I use C & S and Blackmore Vale - the only downside is the drive to collect from BMV. They seem to farm themselves and were certainly full of advice about sheep breeds/when to bring them to slaughter.
