UKSF's man-o-meat, Dave the Butcher, helped mark CUESA's Goat Festival with one of UKSF's annual favorites: goat butchery!

Dave lead the class in breaking down a whole goat in this hands-on butchery class appropriate for beginners, as well as those wishing to hone their knife skills. The class got to work on butchering various cuts of meat until the entire goat had been broken down. Participants learned about the benefits of goat meat, a lean red meat that's both healthy and easy on the environment, and got various suggestions on how to prepare specific cuts they took home.
