I know I haven't posted month 4 of Chance's raw feeding journal but I am working on it. The 17-day Montana trip followed by family that stayed with us for 12 days has put me behind.
It won't be complete because some of the bone amounts didn't get written down and I have to find the trip journal where I wrote down what we were feeding Chance while we were gone.
Last week I picked up my 2nd raw co-op order.
I had ordered 10 lbs. of lamb kidney and 10 lbs. of lamb heart. I got the lamb kidney but the farmer ran out of heart before I could get my order in. There were limited amounts of organs.
This is from the same place as the lamb liver I got for my 1st order. Still grass fed-and-finished, meant for human consumption and cheap. I saw lamb from the same farmer for sale at some local farm stands for a LOT of money!
I also just placed my 3rd order.
1 60-lb. case of elk trim & 1 60-lb. case of venison trim. It's more expensive than I would normally pay for a co-op order but half the price of anywhere else for venison or elk! It's grass fed-and-finished and slaughtered form human consumption. It's about what I pay for beef though so not bad!
120 lbs. of meat means we need a 2nd freezer! If we'd gone with the 19.7 cu. ft. freezer instead of the 14.8 cu. ft. freezer we wouldn't need another one. We are going to get just a 5 cu. ft. freezer. It will fit just fine by the current freezer and still leave room to park in the garage and if it is not in use, we can unplug it. It also means that we can use it to store some stuff for us when it isn't full of Chance's food!
