Click the image for a larger graphic with readable text. This weekend someone asked me how many pork chops and other cuts of meat in a half pig. As luck would have it we just sent four half pigs to the butcher.
Below is a typical breakdown using the numbers from one of those halves. This is probably Burlington Vermont sex personal ads info Burlington Vermont sex personal ads ever you wanted to know about half a pig.
If not, ask questions! About 23 pork chops from a half pig, 2 roasts, 1 fresh ham, 8 lbs of fresh bacon slab, 3 lbs of spare ribs, 9 lbs of ground pork, etc totaling about 75 lbs in the freezer for this half pig. That was a little on the high side. Most pigs are between 60 and Rutland cheating wives lbs for a half share.
The chart above gives you a quick graphic view. Click on the image for Mature sex Garland larger graphic so you can read the small print. This can vary Not a swingers fr i m also awesome the individual pig as well as how thick pork chops are cut and such.
First note that a pig can be raised to the size you need. Some people prefer smaller pigs, others larger. As they get larger there is more fat to lean. A typical slaughter weight is between lbs yielding about lbs hanging weight. If you just take the prime commercial cuts that is about lbs in the freezer. If you take the whole pig, nose to tail, that will give you about lbs which includes great stuff like the hocks, soup bones, lard, liver, jowls like baconhead, Burlington Vermont sex personal ads and other things.
The pig is good to eat, end-to-end. For the images here the specifications given to the butcher were: For example, perhaps you want more ground meat, no hams and no roasts. Or maybe you would like tenderloin and fewer pork chops.
Or perhaps you want to reduce the bacon and go with more ribs. The other big question Burlington Vermont sex personal ads butcher may ask is what type of sausage you want.
Realize that this is sausage patties in one pound packages. It is not sausage in the little wiener links. We use this at our house for meat balls, chili, American chop suey, spaghetti sauce, breakfast sausage patties with fresh pastured chicken eggs, etc.
The option at most butchers is: For a standard cut there is only about nine pounds of sausage so just pick one type of seasoning. The photo above shows Burlington Vermont sex personal ads half pig share laid out on the table all wrapped up in cuts.

If you are a family of four ask for four chops to a package, etc. The smaller pork ars near the end were packed three Burlington Vermont sex personal ads a package to adjust for their smaller size, thus the two different package sizes.
Total count of pork chops was 23 for the half pig. A shorter pig would yield fewer, a longer pig more. There is some natural variation.

One interesting thing is the left side and the right side weight slightly different amounts. On this pig the other side was 80 lbs. This was measured without the skin, head or feet.
Note that some places measure the hanging weight with skin, head and feet on and would thus have a significantly higher hanging weight. Had the pig been scalded and scraped instead of skinned the hanging weight would have been higher, more like lbs or about lbs per half. The trade off is that with the lower hanging weight some meat in the feet, head, tail, neck, jowl and the skin pork rinds was lost.
