2,500 Pounds of Beef, Tripe, Liver and Beef Fat

(Cutting up salmon for snacks.)

It was nice to have my dad here so that he could go with me to Palmer to pick up the last of my 1,500 pounds of meat for the dogs. All the meat comes in 50lb blocks that we cut up. For feeding meals I cut the 50lb blocks into five - 10lb blocks and then I pull them out the night before feeding so they can thaw. For snacks I take a 10lb block and cut them about an inch thick and two inches wide. You want to make sure that the dogs snacks are easy for them to ingest. If they have to work hard to chew something up when they are tired they will most likely not bother.
