Non-Jewish people I know can purchase the meat from half a cow and its much cheaper. Are there any known kosher butchers that do that?
Obviously, it would be from kosher cuts of meat 🙂July 21, 2009 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #651809
“Don’t halve a cow, man.”

LOL ICOT. That was worth it 🙂July 22, 2009 12:27 am at 12:27 am #651811
Since it’s now the nine days, tonight’s question is “when will we meat again?”
Sorry – I just can’t resist sometimes.

There is a cow sale in Jerusalem, at the base of the Temple Mount.July 22, 2009 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #651815
SJSinNYC: in all seriousness i don’t think so being that what we jews pay extra for is the hashgacha not necessarily the meat
hope it helps

I have neighbors that do this, or so one of my kids told me that they do. I think they have someone else who buys the other half. If I am not mistaken, they get it from Baltimore. I will try to get details for you.July 22, 2009 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #651817

ICOT, you are too funny! In fact, you could steak a claim in the YWN Coffee Room, and milk this for all its worth. Now, mooo-ve over and let a pro-punster have some space beef-ore I call in the Moo-derators. I am ox-ing you nicely…July 22, 2009 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #651819

oomis1105 – How long will it take you to loin your lesson? This dialogue shows you are not all that cleaver. Will someone need to meat you in person before you stop this lack of humor? This is getting veal-ly bad. Perhaps we should raise the steaks here.
Time for me to leave now, on my cow-asaki moo-tercycle

Wolf, your challenging words have moo-ved meat-oo respond. I have no beef with you, but I will not allow you to rib me. Why don’t we just lay our deckle of cards on the table and admit that neither of us can be the wiener of this contest. By the way, you veal-y butchered the English language, but that’s ok,it’s only the first (ground) round. I await your response – if you’re not too chicken… 😉
Note to self: It seems weird to be doing all this meaty discussion during The Nine Days…July 23, 2009 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #651835FunnyBunnyMember
“This is getting veal-ly bad”
Actually oomis that was veally quite goodJuly 23, 2009 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #651836
Just when I thought this could not get any wurst. You come out any try to skewer me, perhaps a switch to de-calf will calm things down on both ends. Then we can play a game of moo-nopoly or maybe moo-sical chairs. Failing to switch to de-calf will unfortunately lead to udder chaos.
I do not know what is beef-itting of someone of your caliber. Perhaps I shall be calf-ful in the future as to who I pun with. I looks like I am done, you are probably a cutlet above the rest.

THAT is so funny – you may not be a be-liver, but I was going to use that same expression in my first reply to you! That is almoost moo-raculous! And that’s no bologna. I am not trying to duck the issue. (Now I feel a little sheepish).July 24, 2009 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #651838

I have to say a hadama bracha here–it is so corny! I LOVE it.
Many, many years ago, my parents used to buy half a cow from Rubashkin. Obviously it was half of the kosher end of the cow. I’m sure if you asked the bucher stores that are really butcher stores (as opposed to places like the Kollel store that just sell meat) they could do it for you.
Sorry I am not so punny like all the other wits here. Hmmm. Half of you then would be half-wits, no? Sorry.July 26, 2009 5:07 am at 5:07 am #651845
Try to get a friend to share the cow with you. You can meat somewhere in the middle.
(OK, I couldn’t resist).
On a serious note, why do our butchers not treiber, so that most of the cow could be eaten? It seems such a waste of what I am told is really delicious meat.July 26, 2009 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #651846
In America, the work generally costs more that items are worth. To treiber the meat is a skill. Rabbi Yisroel Belsky, shlita used to treiber deer meat for a company. Kosher deer meat was so expencive that it was worth the cost to treiber. I’m told that he was given a couple of back ends during the summer to practice on to be able to do it neat enough that the meat could still be sold. He was told that he could do what ever he wanted with those pieces. He showed the boys of his masmidim group in Camp Aguda how to trieber and then they grilled the meat to kasher it and ate venison for a few dinners.July 26, 2009 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #651847
But if treibering is not done, won’t that skill eventually be completely lost?July 26, 2009 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #651848July 26, 2009 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #651849
Oomis, I’m sure meat is treibert in countries where food cost more than labor.July 26, 2009 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #651850
I know we don’t treiber here, but it’s a shame. The meat from the end of the cow is supposedly much softer, because the hindquarters are more tender due to those muscles working less strenuously than the front quarters .July 26, 2009 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #651851YW Moderator-72Participant
SJSinNYC, if you are interested, please send me an email. I may have some information that can help you.July 27, 2009 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #651852
PEOPLE!! It’s the 9 days! This line DOESN’T smell fishy to me! Oomis, can you come up with fishy puns? I trout and I trout but I couldn’t.July 27, 2009 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #651854
This is a challenge I just cod not refuse. There is a lox of potentially fishy puns which he have now added to the pool. No perch-asable book will contain the bad puns we are about to come up with. Once in a whale a good one will pop up, but mostly your mussels will ache from the bad jokes.
Bass-ically I am continuing this for the halibut.
I am waiting for someone to throw in a ‘Red herring’ to divert the conversation from fish puns.
Sadly, it is only a matter of time before this thread gets deep fried. The mods have probably already been batter-ed with too many puns. Some probably already have a terrible haddock from all of this. However, I find them fin-tastic!
oomis please don’t get all shellfish. Trying to top me is the impossible bream. Know what your seal-ing is and work with it. If you try hard enough, you can clam second, eel-y
The Other WolfJuly 27, 2009 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #651855
Thank for sending information! I really appreciate it.
Do we allow references to non kosher fish?? It is the 9 days after all 🙂
I’m enjoying where this thread is going LOL.July 27, 2009 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #651856
I was eel-y eel-y trying too hard at the end. I wish someone had not left me to flounder like that.
The Other WolfJuly 27, 2009 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #651857
Wolf – I was reel-y delighted to sea all these puns. They were listed so e-fish-ently. Whale, I tried and tried to come up with some-fin new to talk about, but I just cod-n’t think of any-fin at eel. The bass-t advice I can give you, is to trout for the debate team. There might be a ray of hope there. Let’s see how many puns we can come up with pirhana-um. This thread is very cute. It isn’t just a lucky fluke. Salmon chanted evening, we must talk about this further. I’ll invite my piano tuna to join in the discussion. He has netting better to do.July 27, 2009 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #651858
SJSinNYC-July 28, 2009 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #651859
I batter eat a good breakfast if I want to beet oomis. I’m gonna need lots of fruits and veggies, as well as some other foods. Like a hard boiled egg I’m gonna be hard to beat. To many people the though of facing me in such a challenge is like the naked banana, not very appealing.
What to eat to clam victory? Bakery buns usually get me on a roll. I guess it would be wise to eat a latte them. I am on a diet, but a waste is a terrible thing to mind. If I actually followed my diet, i’d be up for the Nobelly Prize. Eh, I can always quit tomorrow cold turkey. (I hope that is not just my pita-rnal instincts talking).
But the key is getting me to properly espresso myself. I don’t want to come off as someone who is pasta his prime. I want to be viewed as a mushroom, one of high morel standing. Being that you, oomis, are like yogurt (cultured) there is no little margarine for error. Last thyme you were butter than me and I was toast. This thyme I must proceed dill-icately as you have the ability to be a-maize-ing. In fact I relish the fact that I’ve mustard the strength to ketchup to you.
Almond joying myself in this thread oomis, but I’d like to make a piece offering, if that is the way of pudding it. Offer me amixture of basil, olive oil, garlic, and ground pine nuts. Suddenly we’ll became pesto friends.July 28, 2009 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #651860

I bow to your punderful sense of hummus. I take panini hand and o-fish-ely admit you did a butter job than I. Now let’s live, laugh, and be merry, for tomorrow we may diet.July 28, 2009 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #651862seeallsidesParticipant
