Pork Preview

I’m documenting the final days of these pigs as part of a photo project for my capstone. I know that sounds disgusting, but I

am trying to be an informed carnivore, and that means gaining an understanding of how the animals we eat are raised, kept, slaughtered, and then butchered. I always think its funny when people who eat meat still get squeamish when confronted with the idea that it was a living being with a tail and tongue (which is delicious, by the way, tongue tacos, omg so good).

This photo was taken during a class taught at MU. These students will examine the skinned bodies of the slaughtered pigs next week. I will be at the slaughtering tomorrow morning with my camera, 8am sharp.

I will probably just write about the experience, as I’m not quite sure what to expect of myself. I pass out at the sight of my own blood, but not others’, so I should be ok in that sense, but emotionally, it should be a trip, to say the least. I will refrain from posting grotesque and gruesome photos of the process on this blog. This is not the place for that kind of discussion, and I feel the meaning and context would be lost. Also, just to clarify, I am not doing this to expose some great cruelty, I feel these animals have been treated quite well, considering the circumstances.

  1. Hey, Michael and Brittany!

    Brittany just messaged me on Facebook about your new blog, so I’m just getting acquainted, but I wanted to speak up and say I’d love to see more into this pig process. It doesn’t have to be the grotesque of the grotesque, but the responsible carnivore movement is so strong now that I think many of us would like to see what you see.

    So is that a class at MU? How cool! What kind of a class and what’s your capstone? Also, do you know Bobby Johnson, Daniel Soetaert or Adam Saunders? They are the ones composting from the dining halls. They also teach sustainability/composting classes. (http://tinyurl.com/apokfe)

    Can’t wait to read more of your blog!

  2. Addie, I am in my capstone for my Photojournalism major, so I was going to show a “5 points of view” for the last days of the pigs’ lives. Unfortunately, I missed the slaughter this morning, so that’s kinda shot. They will be doing the same thing with some steers in a few weeks, so I will re-attempt this idea. I do not know any of those people listed, but sounds interesting. Thanks for the enthusiasm 🙂
