Post First home killed pig
Being a hunter ive shot plenty of pigs and eaten alot of the ones shot. Usually I just take the legs and backstraps.
Yesterday was my first time of doing one properly and it was alot easier than I thought , The only problem we had was at first the water wasnt hot enough but a second go at it and we got it spot on.
Once he was killed and bled out , into the bath he went and all the hair was off within minutes. Then he was gutted , washed down and left to cool
He is now hanging in the coolroom waiting to be turned into hams and chops later this week.
