Our hogs are shipped at approximately 200 pounds. A 200 pound hog will produce approximately a 160 pounds hanging carcass weight. Around 40 pounds are lost in hide, blood and inedible organs. Hanging weight means the customer pays for the chilled, hanging carcass weight of the slaughtered hog with the head, hide and internal organs removed. The hanging carcass weight is usually about 80 percent of the weight of a live hog. It is important to note that the hanging carcass weight is not the same as the boxed freezer weight of the cut hog. When the carcass is cut into legs and chops, additional bone and fat are discarded. The weight of the cut hog depends on what cuts are requested, and the size of the hog.
Processing costs are within $200 – $300.
