Wednesday May 19, Northern Haiti


What an interesting day. Visited the local abattoir to see how cattle, goats, and hogs are processed. In addition to standard cuts of meats, the liver, kidneys, and heart are used as meat products. Forgot that value-added products such as feet, head, intestines are also utilized as meat products. On the way back from the abattoir we captured this picture of carcasses being hauled from processing facility to Farmers Market, distance of about six kilometers. Note process improvement, the carcasses are covered with plastic to protect them from dust and flies. Believe it or not I had no problem eating dinner that night.
