We are getting ready to butcher my whether. he is 4 1/2 mos old...starting to get a little too pushy and I have a feeling come next month he is going to be interested in mom and sister! I do not think the banding went well!

I figured we would just grind up the meat as he is so young.

My question is...do I have to hang him for days or can I just grind up the meat after he bleeds out? I could hang him over night as the weather has cooled down at night, but the days are still warm.

He might make really tender chops and roasts because he is so young, although they would be small. I don't know about the hanging, I take mine to the butcher and they come back in nice frozen packages, I am a wimp. But I think I have heard someone say on here that if they are that young they don't have to hang.
