USDA Revises Recommended Cooking Temperature for  Pork to 145 °F!
Finally, Pork Doesn't Have To Be As Tough As Leather.

WASHINGTON, May 24, 2011 - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is updating its recommendation for safely cooking pork, steaks, roasts, and chops. USDA recommends cooking all whole cuts of meat to 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat, then allowing the meat to rest for three minutes before carving or consuming.

This change does not apply to ground meats, including ground beef, veal, lamb, and pork, which should be cooked to 160 °F and do not require a rest time. The safe cooking temperature for all poultry products, including ground chicken and turkey, remains at 165 °F.

You can read the complete report from the USDA by clicking here.

Aging Pork

Never “Age” Pork.

Instead cut and wrap it within  24 to 48 hours of slaughter.

Only good quality Beef and Lamb should be “Aged” before cutting.

Freezing Pork

Slow freezing is undesirable as it makes for greater breakdown of muscle cells and subsequent greater juice losses when meat is thawed. Freeze at temperatures as far below zero as possible.

Store meat at zero or lower to prevent rapid development of rancidity. The storage temperature should not vary; fluctuations foster dehydration.


Hog Definitions

 Piglet - A Young Pig

Boar - An Adult Male Pig

Sow - An Adult Female Pig

Gilt - A Young Female Pig That Has Not Yet Had Piglets

Barrow - A Male Castrated Pig At A Young Age

Farowing - Giving Birth To Piglets


Hog Facts

A market hog weighs about 220 lbs. to 260 lbs.

It takes 114 days (3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days) from conception until a sow gives birth to the piglets.

Most sows have 2 litters per year with 7 to 12 piglets in each.

Hogs' ears are notched so that farmers can identify what month they were born and which sow was their mother.

Pork cuts are leaner now!
