It's to do with the meat keeping longer Roundy. Barbaric as it is.

It seems farmers were bringing their pigs into slaughterhouses 180 years ago.
And much further back. There were slaughter houses in medieval Ireland. However I'm talking about the twentieth century and farmers killing pigs for their own consumption. Neighbours would often be given a cut as well.

The other post was on about killing pigs on a farm. Unlike most of you townies I grew up on a farm and before the EEC/EU directed us to send animals to factories to be killed, farmers slaughtered their own animals for their own consumption. Beef would be a rarity, but a pig was a far cheaper and easier to manage animal for the table. Slit his throat, drain the blood and butcher him, salt it and stick it in barrels, nothing wasted but the squeal. We had a big old bastard of a butcher's knife for slitting the pigs throat although in my day it was used for cutting bale cords and opening paint tins.
No bolt gun, no stunner. So there.
Dowtcha Flyingspud,
Thanks for the confirmation. However I'm afraid that people who get their farming information from TV soaps will still believe we're fantasizing.

They never slaughtered the pigs themselves in his lifetime anyways so thats going back 80 years and my grandfather worked in a slaughterhouse in Cork city as a young man.
Nobody said all farmers killed pigs. Farmers always sold stock at fairs to slaughterhouse dealers. Later when lorries became common some farmers would supply directly to slaughter houses. I witnessed a pig being killed in an outhouse as a kid. You've another witness here. Do you want us to swear on the bible.

The fantasy that sound Irish Catholic people couldn't ever possibly do this "barbaric" throat slitting stuff. They did, before we turned into nut milk sipping tofu munchers.

You're a bit slow. Were you kept back a year?

"Did" i.e. past tense.

Yeah but that was before the industry was more properly regulated and prior to the arrival of bolt guns etc. How animals were slaughtered here in the past had nothing to do with religion yet it is religious beliefs that "force" Muslims to use the halal method now despite more humane methods being available.
