One advantage to having in-laws that raise cattle is the ability to call them up and say “We’d like a cow; grass-fed – not finished on grain…do you have one?”
They did. He wasn’t as large as they usually would wait to butcher, but he was big enough. So, we bought him, and finally got the meat back!
Want to see what 322 pounds of beef looks like? Yeah, I was curious, too.
Note the bags of breast milk stacked neatly on the second shelf of the first picture. Over 200 ounces of milk that I can’t feed my son. Just. Sickening.
So, hopefully this will hold us for a while. Fingers crossed that Mr. Happy doesn’t react to beef!
