    Yes, canning meat is good stuff. Never thought I'd like it until stopping into a place on the way to the farm to buy free range eggs from a retired couple that lived there. They had a pantry full of canned pork and beef along with every variety of vegetable and jelly's.
    Nobody answered the door a couple of years ago, and I see the house and property has sold now so have to assume they went to town or something more serious happened.

    I know owners that shut down that kind of business because all the people *****in about not getting all their meat.

    Yea how much meat do ya think is on a 70 pound deer with no bones in it less than 25 lbs but you can't convince the customers of that.
    I tell people I will help you grind and package the meat no problem with that but I will not do it all while you are gone or watching TV and eating pizza.

    I have no issues using my grinder and my place to package and grind meat either. But you must be willing to do the work right along beside me.

    There is a new one that should open in Sept/Oct 2020 in Council Hill, OK. Man's last name is Watson (Damon, I think..search FB). They will have all the checkboxes met, so the meat could be for personal use or resold.

    On the 1190# steer my brother and I had processed, the hanging weight was 764#, and we got 398# of packaged meat.

    1/3 of the live weight. Seems like very little doesn't it.

    Yes it does, but hide, guts, and bones weigh ALOT.

    If you're still looking for a processor, you might give McKinney's south of Yale on Roanoke Road a call. I've had them do some work in the past and was pleased. (918) 387-2401

    Our appointment date for a steer I had hoped to get in after the 1st of the year is August 3, 2021.. LOL, at that rate I should make a date for the calf that hit the ground earlier this year..
