My eyes are bleeding again...

Just spend half an hour searching amazon for a book on meat cuts and butchery... nothing I saw was on the different cuts in the industry or names of cuts around the country. I've seen this book once and for the life of my I cannot find it again.

I'm also interested in books specializing in hog butchery. On my days off I'm heading to FSU's library to see if I can find the book I'm looking for, but just incase one of you out there has an idea or has said books :) I'd love to hear about them.

So many cuts I just don't know about and I need to catch up :)

I'm very interested in this information as well. Would love to learn more about butchery, especially related to pork.

I love the River Cottage book, a must read for carnivours (like me) :) I've heard of the others but have yet to see them in hand.

Not so much on "how to butcher" but it's a great book to have.

Nice, this is one of the books I have been interested in, don't know how many times I get asked for a cut in another language and nether one of us can figure out what to do about it. So many cuts or equivalent cuts get lost due to regionality... especially when your in a job that goes for specific regional differences.

I too have been looking for books on this subject. In addition to the ones on your list, I have this one on my list, though I know nothing about it.
