Question for the mods....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would it be possible to sticky this thread?

Also, I have the sourcing meats info, but can't update the original post anymore; can a mod do that for me?

Thanks!!

SOURCING MEATS

Online Vendors: Rodent Pro / Hare Today / Prey 4 Pets

Local Sources: Ethnic markets are often good sources for hard-to-find organ meats.

Barter groups and coops. There’s usually an annual cost, but everything you get is fresh – a benefit to your pets and your family.

Tell friends and relatives who hunt and fish that you are interested in animal parts they don't want. Talk to restaurants and caterers and ask for organs and other meat pieces they throw out. Also try the restaurant suppliers.

Your local butcher. Ask for the meats and organs they would normally throw out, including items that are nearing expiration.

For the non-squeamish…

Taxidermists. Local animal breeders and farmers (don’t forget to ask about culls and still-born animals).

Slaughterhouses, meat and poultry packers and distributors. Ask for organ meats that normally get tossed. Also ask what else they throw away.

Livestock auctions (the animals can be butchered for you).

Cost-Cutting Tips: Ask about bulk purchasing everywhere. Watch for sales and marked-down meats, even in your local grocery store. (I get chicken liver and beef heart for less than a dollar a pound sometimes.)

Join a Costco, Sams Club or other similar club store.

Craigslist and Freecycle. You can watch for deals as well as advertise that you’ll pick up hunting and fishing remains, cleaned-out freezer meats, etc.

Since the MODS read every thread I will guess they have read and are thinking about it ....

Perfect! Thanks, Rosiemac!

Thanks for the info, Sharky, that was what I thought, too. I just wanted to followup since it had been a few days since the original post.
