If you’ve ever considered raising your own meat, get a crash course on raising pigs and poultry! Many of the tips can be used for other animals as well. You’ll learn about different options for processing the meat - whether to use a commercial butchery or to do the processing yourself. Both ways have been used by the instructors and they will talk about the nitty gritty of processing your own animals and the supplies you would need.
