So the steer goes around one side of the trailer and then Mike is on the other side, and they did this round and round dance 1 1/2 times (the steer even walked over the hitch between the truck and trailer just like Mike). Then Mike did a double back and the steer went nicely into the trailer. I was hoping this would happen so I wouldn't have to get dressed and go outside in the cold to help him.
All 4 steers dressed out between 420-440 lbs. Mike took 3 of the hides up somewhere in PA to be tanned (lord knows what we're going to do with 3 hides so if you're in the market for a cool Beltie Hide- let me know if not I'll have cow hide chairs?)
He's going to smoke the bones for dogs and I just asked him if he kept any other parts and he said-- yeah the tongue and the liver.
So if you want beef or tongue or liver, let him know! A co-worker brought me in pickled tongue last year and although it wasn't bad-- it wasn't something I could get over.
