Tomorrow afternoon, our two steers will be slaughtered. I'm not the best writer or communicator (just ask my wife) so it is difficult to express how I feel about it. I wholeheartedly believe my participation in raising these animals has changed the way I look at food and the way I cook. I would argue the experience has improved both. And even though I have already participated in slaughtering steers, it is still...the anticipation is really strange.
UPDATE: The weather has postponed the slaughter to a date still to be determined.
