Where Pigs Really Get Slaughtered

Tyler Durden's picture


Bulls make money; Bears make money; but Pigs get slaughtered - in massive amounts in China compared to the rest of the world... and unlike Ben Bernanke's apparent life-long vendetta against bears and their deflationary threat, this post actually means real pigs...

Sure, China may have the rest of the world beat when it comes to pig production, but I'll betcha the USofA leads the world in muppet production.

BTW, OT, but if you agree that the sequestration cuts should be allowed to happen (which I do), you'll be in company with this guy:

Long Pork?

8 out of 10 cannibals (part of Oprah's bloodline, and that's NOT RACIST, because it's factual-- look it up, bitches) who eat long pork or used to eat it, say that Japanese people taste best.

Pulled Pork BBQ


This is the easiest, tastiest recipe I’ve ever seen for this. Give it a try; I guarantee you’ll love it!


Pork shoulder roast, 2 – 4 pounds per leftovers desired


1 cup tomato ketchup

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white vinegar


Combine ketchup, sugar and vinegar, set aside.


Buy pork shoulder; unwrap / remove packaging, put in slow cooker on low for 4 – 6 hours. No salt, no pepper (unless desired, later, after first experience). Pork will cook and come out ready to fall off bones.


When cooked, pull pork out of cooker onto cutting board. Resist compulsion to eat all of it, right out of the cooker, before adding sauce.

Remove bones, excess fat, gristle; pull into shreds with two forks or similar method. Collect shreds in bowl; add sauce and mix / toss.

That’s it. Put on buns, eat. Pickles, sauerkraut, potato salad anyone?


This stuff gets better in the refrigerator for a couple of days; the flavors blend, mix, and grow. Makes a great ready-to-eat snack, late-night nibble, game-day gobble.

vinegar for apple cider vinegar

Agreed.  Pig farms are the worst.

Raising rabbits is where it is at for small scale home consumption.  They are quiet, easy to care for, dont stink the joint up.

Just don't let little kids in the area know what you're up to.  You can kill and eat, cows, pigs and chickens, but hurt a bunny rabbit and you're Hitler.

Edit:  Bunny poop is excellent fertilizer.

Lived on a pig farm for awhile, the damned things would get their heads stuck in the fencing in the middle of the night and be screaming at the top of their lungs.

Someone clearly didn't understand proper fencing.

A critter that's REALLY good at getting stuck in fences is a goat.  Here's something that can also make a lot of noise!

Rabbit and squirrel were popular because they were a one-meal deal.  Larger animals worked for a larger group of people, but it still was mostly an issue of one meal.

When refrigeration came along things changed...

One significant thing that you won't get out of a rabbit or squirrel that you can get from a pig is lard.  That and the ability to clear land...

Back in the early 1900s (in the US) pigs were referred to as "mortgage lifters."

Of course, I'd prefer to face an angry buck over an angry boar any day!

I prefer mobile structures.  This way you not only manage waste easier (no mucking out), but this also helps manage pathogens.  It does, however, require more land.

Most people don't realize how significant "waste" issues factor in livestock operations.

used to shoot pigeons for a hog farmer.  He was sick of the birds eating all the feed.  Had to get the birds before the hogs got to them and ate them.  He used to buy our shotshells for us a case at a time.  Great wingshooting practice and helped the farmer out too.  Good eating birds by the way.  So am familiar with hog farm smells.  Also coyote hunt on a hog farm.  Sling shots only,  lost all guns in a snowmobile accident.

If you shoot the pigeons with salt or steel instead of lead it is OK for the pigs to eat them.

Pigs will eat farmers too, if they are unfortunate enough to fall down in the pig sty.

First question is how inflated are these pig figures? 

Second question: Does China have their own version of "hollistic" CPI changes? You know inflated piggies means people substitute for cat, dog, rat and mouse, etc..

You know.... people taste like pork (according to Japanese post WWII hold-outs who resorted to cannibalism).

Am I the only one wondering if China has already started on the Soylent Green path? ...........After all they're selling organs from prisoners for transplant - seems very un-Chinese to waste the rest..... (keep in mind that Chinese street vendors make dumplings out of cardboard)

Why do you think humans are called long pig/long pork? Hopefully NOT coming to neighborhood near you, post SHTF. We should ask N Koreans for the latest recipes.

Humans are best steamed at a high temperature and pressure and turned into hog-slop, which is then pumped into the hog farms. Once processed through the pigs, they become pork. This is why China has mobile steamer trucks and tankers for the processing of prisoners. Rebellion in the outer provinces? No Problem.
