There is a massive article on butchering a pig in the Backwoods Home Magazine Sept/Oct 2010 Issue # 125.  For anyone who wants to know how and has never done so, this is the article for you.

Also, in the Sept/Oct 2010 issue of Countryside Magazine, there is an article called Harvesting the Homestead Hog.  This article goes into detail about how to butcher, cut and process your hog
