37 pounds boned meat, pressure canned
8 pounds back-straps to neighbor
5 pounds heart, liver and kidneys (dog kettle)
5 pounds meat-scraps, blood-shot meat (dog kettle) Total recovered 55 pounds
7 pounds meat (approximately) discarded before starting dog kettle
10 pounds Shanks and meat with much connective tissue, between ribs, etc that was not recovered Potentially usable but not recovered 17
10 pounds hide
10 pounds head
remainder Skeleton, hooves etc
The 45 pounds that went to human consumption was far below the 65-to-70 pounds I would have expected from taking it to a commercial processor.
One of the big differences is that the commercial processor would have taken many of the scraps that went to the dog kettle and were tossed and used it to make ground meat. The ground meat would have picked up another 4 pounds of suet in the process.
That is, about 35% of the total amount of "recoverable" meat on the carcass.
