Half hogs weigh about 95 pounds (hanging weight) and yield approximately 60 pounds of cut meat for your freezer. (Double those numbers for a rough estimate on a whole hog.) The hanging weight price is $5.50/lb. for a half hog, or $5.00 for a whole hog.
The pigs are harvested on the farm for a fee of $100.00 per animal ($50.00 per half hog) and transported to Valley Meat Services in Wallowa. Valley Meat charges $.99 per pound to cut and "wrap" (vacuum-seal) the meat, and $1.25 per pound for cured and smoked items.
Here's what the pricing might look like for a 1/2 hog weighing 95 pounds. Please remember that carcass weights vary from one animal to the next, and your half may not look exactly like this one.
Hanging Weight (95 X $5.50)
Mobile Butcher Fee
Butcher Shop Cut & Wrap (95 X $.99)
Smoke & Cure (34 X $1.25)
22 pounds ham, 12-14 pounds bacon [Contains nitrates]
