Took this 90lb sow with a hand load I produced from my lee loader. Round cost maybe .50 cents but at todays prices probably $ 2 bucks.
After destroying left front quarter from the pass thru I was left with 1 front shoulder, 2 straps and 2 hind quarters. I'm guess 25lbs of meat.
Took me maybe an hour to do the gutless method and haul off the carcass.

.08 cents a pound for some excellent pork

Yeah, the gutless method is the way to go but initially it seemed to take me forever, too.
I'm getting better. Practice makes perfect, eh?

Nice sized hog. Keep after 'em!

It is the way to go. Although a little part of me wants to gut and do sort of a side of pork type of thing. Not to mention the belly meat and fat that could be used for bacon or added to the grind for sausage.
