Quick cooking OLD meat to feed to pets.
My mom, who recently passed away, left 2 little chest freezers and one upright full of food - much of it way out of date and freezer burned. The good stuff has been donated to our local food pantry - but 6 year old chicken breasts? No can do. So I'm dumping it in the pressure cooker and have cooked 3 full loads so far this evening - lamp, beef, chicken and pork - all getting cooked and re-packaged to feed to the dogs and cats and chickens. They are SO HAPPY!

Yep. We feed our dogs raw but sometimes with game I worry about tape worms and other parasites. This is much easier than my stove top pressure cooker.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
