Yay, finally snow.

I know the first eggs a chicken lays start small and they get bigger
the older a hen gets, but this was a little extreme. I feel sorry for the hen who spit this out.

Two weeks ago, Scott and Andrea took the steers to Nate's house for him to slaughter for us. They've been hanging out in his shop in the cold to age for two weeks. We went over Saturday, late afternoon to help him cut and wrap our steer. Mostly he cut, Scott did all the grinding into burger, and I packaged. We brought home a fourth of the finished product Saturday night and we'll get the rest of it tomorrow. I think he weighed just under 400 pounds hanging weight. That means hide, head and innards removed.
This was a big 1000 pound bull that was hanging to age and waiting it's turn to be cut up.
Our little guy was not so big.
