Love that back fat

You know that area above your bra line where  fat sort of bulges over and out ? Oh, you don't ? Nice for you, real happy for you but some of us have to deal with imperfect bodies. And then there is  the lovely hog who gets paid to have back fat. Well his farmer gets paid. Don't mind me just having fun with fonts.

So yeah, the fattest pig wins as long as there is still a good amount of real juicy meat as well as fat. Chefs love back fat. Wives of chefs must be the happiest women on earth. Unless of course it the farmers wife. We all know how much they love fat calves.


Took this pic last week of a Red Wattle we were deliveriing to one of our Chicago Chefs. This particular RW had been reserved last fall about 6 months ago. It hadn't even been weaned yet from its mama but it and several of its siblings were tagged for chefs wanting the RW for future menus. Now at 7 months of age it's hanging weight was 286 pounds.
A big fellow with good back fat and beefy red meat. Folks often ask us, "Is the meat of a Red Wattle really any different from other swine breeds ?

                        Yes it is we say. Yes it is.
