When can I plan on picking up the finished product?

Hogs only need to hang a day or two so the majority of your meat would be ready to pick-up the week following the week it is processed.  Tuesdays are the planned slaughter day so the mid to late portion of the following week the fresh packaged pork should be ready. ...

How much packaged meat can I expect from my animal?

As a pig gets larger there is more fat to trim off.  A typical slaughter weight is between 250 – 300 lbs.  A 250-lb. pig will yield about 180-lbs. of hanging weight.  If you only take the prime cuts you will get about 120-lbs. of meat in your freezer from a whole hog....
