How much is everyone paying for sausage making?
I got 3 pigs all about 75kg dead weight.
All I want is sausages and chops out of them.
How much is a reasonable price to pay?

Got four in butchers now.
One for bacon.
Three for jointing, chopping and sausage from off cuts.
There will be charges for cutting, curing and sausage making.
Will post charges later.

£25 slaughter and delivery to butcher, £30 butchering, £1 / 1lb sausage.

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
