How to Kill and Skin a Sheep (part 2)


This is only one of many ways to do a home kill. Just remember this is our way at Men’s Domain.  There are a few rules and regulations that you may need to follow so check them out here New Zealand Food Safety Authority.

You need to take the skin off the belly region so push your fist from the front of the sheep to the rear under the skin. You will need to do this on both sides.





Now for the last bit of part 2 is to take the brisket off and cut it. Pulling the skin off the brisket takes a bit of effort. Once you have the skin off you need to cut it and then saw though the brisket.
