more loot from the butcher's

so next weekend we'll grind up another batch of raw for the kids (last batch was good for 3 weeks) - today we stocked up at the butchers, all we need to do is pick up a box of chicken frames next Friday and we're good to go.

40 lbs of beef hearts
15 lbs of beef kidneys (about 7 lbs will go in the mix)
5 lbs of beef liver

total was $62 and we'll end up with a month's supply of ground raw this time for about $60

so yeah... raw feeding can be quite economical if you put in a bit of homework and elbow grease

so i haven't followed up on any of the raw diet discussions, but aren;t you supposed to feed MEAT? the heart is a muscle, is that good enough for the beans as opposed to a nice pork bum or beef steak.

yep, heart is considered a muscle meat, just like rump or chest or cheek it's not an organ meat like liver, kidneys, sweetbreads etc. Check out the raw grinding pictorial and you'll see how we prep everything... i'll soon post a few photos of the beanie's meals so you see what kind of variety they are getting

he he he! don't fret, they get pork roasts a couple times per week (we eat cereal and peanut butter toast)

red meat is better for muscle & weigh gain than "white meat" so we try to include as much as possible without breaking the bank... and beef hearts are the cheapest beef muscle meat we can find ($0.99/lbs). however we add a bunch of other meats and goodies to their ground food so yeah... they're getting good stuff
