Dr_Pain Still not even done getting it all cut. Hopefully I can get the carcass processed tonight.
The first one didn’t go so well. She moved and the shot grazed her, then the sticking didn’t get the mainline so she didn’t get bled as quick as I would have liked. And the hoist setup I had failed as we began skinning. So there was more blood in the shoulders to trim and more hair on the hind to clean.
The second gilt was textbook. I didn’t even need to put feed or milk down to get her still, she just stood there staring at me. I had longer knife so I got the jugular right away. The pen was a little muddy and after the first we just wanted to get her processed as quick as possible so we didn’t save any blood…but we’ll try again next time.
