With this area I can help! I moved to the city from the country
family still lives). I can tell you how to get meat cheap and help
the same time.
Contact your local County Extension Service or 4-H
Every year kids around the country raise animals to show in the local
They HAVE to sell these animals to be slaughtered at the end of the
Most counties have a sale of these carcasses (what is the meat after
animal is slaughtered. If the animal didn’t place well in the show,
not get to sell their animal in the “Fair Sale”. So they usually
try to find someone to buy the meat.
I know that my last beef cost me
pound, including processing. I bought the animal and the processor
to ask how I wanted it packed (how many pounds of gr. beef per pack
and what cuts I wanted.
Even made me some summer sausage! I just love
fact that I can sit down to dinner with a T-Bone Steak and know that
paid $1 a pound AND helped a child recover some money to buy another
next year! This is also a great way to buy lamb, pork ect.
