How much would you pay to process a pig?

So, the story is, I had two really good looking wild pigs that I wanted to have processed and cut on so I took them to get processed at a meat market in here in the Houston area. The pigs were skinned before I took it in to have processed. I did not request anything special. I requested for the pigs to just be cut on and maybe a couple of packets of pan sausage with the trimmings. Both of the pigs were about 80 pounds or so and the meat looked great.

The turn around time was great, less than a week. Now the price tag for both pigs is $135.00.

I took a pig in last year to another place and paid about $40.00.

I thought I would try the new place out but WOW! I did not expect a $135.00 price tag??

Live and learn I guess?


My question is, what would be a fair amount to pay per pig? With the weight of one pig being under 100 lbs.

No. I paid $135.00 for both. Both pigs weighed about 80 pounds.

I've never paid more than $35 to have a hog processed. Sausage, chorizo, chops and hams cut and packaged. But I usually ask before I leave it with them.
