As a cost savings/local eating effort, we have found a local farm that 
does their own butchering that will sell us a quarter cow at $2.25/lb
and  a half or quarter pig at $1.80/lb (good prices for around here). 
They will cut our meat to our specs... but I no longer have the old 
Cooperative Extension charts or the Fanny Farmer edition with the charts 
of cuts in it!

When working with a whole, half or quarter pig, what are good cuts to 
Thank you!
