Visit to F.D Statton and Son

There was a good turn out for our visit to Statton's Slaughterhouse at Davidstow, as members were intrigued to learn more about the process of slaughtering farm animals. Jonny Statton, who is very well known to most members, carefully dissected a pre-1996 Friesian cow, starting by skinning it and then removing limbs and organs (intestines, heart, lungs, stomach, kidneys, liver, spleen, etc) to leave just the carcass. Despite a few people feeling a little queasy, lots of questions were asked and great interest was shown. Many thanks to Jonny Statton and Sam Burden for the visit.
