    I heard that once they dispatch them it's up to you as far as the rest,free choice,they do tests and measurements and do not take them when they leave

    Fish and Wildlife do not recommend eating them because of swine brucellosis. I have eaten a few and they were good. Smoked is the best. I have killed a few and couldn't hardly stand beside them because of the stench.

    I am no expert and have never eaten a ky hog but I have eaten a lot of wild hog we have killed in Texas. They taste just like a farm raised hog but are lean. I love making them into brats, snack sticks and sausage of every sort. Delicious smoked and chops grilled are fantastic. I can only guess that ky hog would be better given that they have more food sources than the Tx hogs I have killed.

    Agreed, our TX hogs were great. We had the young ones made into all the regular cuts and the bigger ones ground for sausage, it was all good. I think F&W downplays eating them to discourage folks from hunting them in KY. Folks are eating them everywhere in the south and I don't hear of any real problms

    Cattle can get brucellosis too, I have all my heifers vaccinated but a lot of people don't, i'd say there's a couple that find their way to the slaughterhouse

    No they don't. They get tested at the slaughterhouse. If a positive shows up, it is then traced back to the source. Most positives are false positives that comes when they are vaccinated after a certain age an they have a titer build up.
