Holly smokes...You all make a science out of this. Not that, thats bad. Cheers too you. We never done all that thinking though. lol we just threw them meat scraps. Usualy whatever they wanted of them.
I realy don't get people that say dogs need veggies and stuff. You know what dogs are designed to eat right? What would they eat in the wild. It's surely not vegitables and kibbled dog foods that most of the nutrition is cooked out of. You know theres only a few dog foods out there that aren't actualy harmful too your pets. Do some research on kibbled dogs foods. Do some research on Canine Anatomy/physiology. Don't bother with the modern dietary stuff cause everyone thinks weird and sympothetic now days. They have vegitarian dog food for crying out loud. Most dog foods on the shelf have certian preservatives that in fact are concidered toxic to your pets if you study deep enough. I had a guy tell me some stuff to go look at a few years ago that scared the crud out of me. I learned how horrible I had actualy been to my dogs by feeding what I could afford in a bag. I learned I could have dogs that lived longer, healthier, and do their job 10X as well as they ever had. I'm not saying All feeds are bad, or feed "only" meat. Just saying you should realy think about what you do feed.

I was wondering. I have some beef scrap from the butcher and was wondering if I can give it to my hounds raw or do I have to boil it or what?

This is what I picked Up yesterday .. He "Split" Himself on the Ice , The Farmer was rather Upset as this Bull was the Best he ever had. The Farmer Said he was 1800#s !! Well lets just say I had to ask the Farmer for a "Bigger Gun" !!!

Now I did all the Skinning and Quarting while this Beast was Still on the Trailer with the Help of the 4 wheeler .. Then De-Boned all the Meat and Started Grinding it ..

I have found that Using it Ground makes it much Easier to use..

He was 12' Long !! Yesterday Morn. at 11:30


He Was Huge !!

Heres the Grider and you can do about 400# in a hour with it !!


Eash Tray Hold about 35#s of Ground Beef .. And I Pack about 5#s in 1 Gal Zip Lock


I have been Feeding about 40-50% Raw Beef with Dry Feed. The Problum is that out of 3 Head of Cattle this Winter their isn't Enough Fat on these Cattle .. Dairy Cows have No Fat at All !!!! Even this Angus only had about 5% Fat if that !!

I'am still working on just how much Raw to Dry Feed I should be using ..

Now their is a Huge Amount of Dairy Cattle that Split their Hind Quaters !!! 2 weeks ago I got a call on a Dariy Cow that Hung Herself in the Feeder Head Stalls ..

Guys Theirs alot of Free Hound Feed out their !! It has taken me about 12 Hours to Grind this size of Beast..

Like I said I do it all Right on the Trailer You Skin Half then De-Bone Half ..

I got 498# off one Half .. Once you have it Boned out on one Side you have to Gut them.. I Pull the Trailer to a Hill on our Property, Then Back Down and Start Gutting .. You just Roll it off the Trailer .. Very Easy !!

Then you have to Flip them over and do it again !!!!



All you'l have left is Bare Bones ... I just Wish I had a Bone Grinder !!!

Maybe I'l try Renting a Tree Chipper Grinder ????? LOL

By the Way His Heart Barely Fit in a 5 Gal Bucket.. His Liver Filed 2-5 gal Buckets

I Did Not Cut the Tripe Out "Yet" this will be another 50#s of Feed ...

The Biggest Shock I had was once the Farmer had Loaded Him on my Trailer he ask me "Do I owe you Anything for Hauling him Off" !!! NO I'am GOOD I Said !!
