1/2 Hog

1/2 Hog

Approx. 65 lbs. of meat

Price for the hog is $2.59 per pound based on the hanging weight of the hog.

Processing is NOT included in price and will be added on.

Processing cost will vary between butcher's and what type of cuts, sausage, or smoking you want done.

Average 1/2 hog starting (hanging) weight is approximately 100 lbs.

Price is based on the starting (hanging) weight of the hog before processing. Smoking, grinding, linking and slicing are not included in listed price.

Expect approximately 60-70% yield on finished pork depending on your cut choices. This would be approximately 60-70 lbs. of meat and require 5 to 7 cubic feet in freezer space.

Have it custom cut and packaged the way you like.
