We are having a killer time getting a date with a processor.  It seems they are all packed (literally) with no appointment until the first of the year.  Is anyone else having that issue?

Year plus here, if they are taking an appointment at all.  My son has 2 slots in late December that he isn't going to use now, if you're interested.  Might be a long road trip, with un-predictable weather.   ;)

Same thing here I butchered a steer myself in April. I hadn’t done that in at least 15 years but I have the old butcher shop on the farm that we do deer in. A few people have been asking me if I would butcher for them next winter don’t know if I want to get involved in all that.

I made an appointment to have a beef processed last week.  His first available date is the middle of November.

I know what you mean, we used to butcher all the time and do our own deer but its been years on a beef.  We did butcher a buffalo a couple weeks ago for ourselves.  That was an experience.  My butcher it booked up until April.
