There is a non-meat related entry in the first paragraph, second line, referring to a Geoff Owens, who's nickname is the butcher. Can we get rid of that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:25, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

This article is very poor and needs to be rewritten. It is a hodgepodge of unrelated sections. Also, why does the section "equipment" start talking about a cut of meat, the top? Why is there a discussion of any cut, and why just that one? Shouldn't the sausagemaking section just refer to the article of the same name?

Any butchers out there that can help?

This article has been in the past (excuse the pun) badly butchered by vandals.

Looking at older edits, I see some signficant changes were made here:

another problem, is in the current article, "aitch bone" is mentioned (which appears to be nonsense), originally was "hip bone".

Not being an expert, I have no idea whether any of these changes are correct or not.

I would also recommend that we semi-protect this article, as it seems to get hit a lot...

Butcher as slaughterer[edit]

I added information to include the slaughter portion, as this is common in the US. I removed the section on cuts, as it was specific to beef in the UK, and the subject is better covered in the see also sections. Similarly, sausagemaking was removed, as this is a specific function not usually included in butchery.

Hi, the Butcher WP:PT was in sad shape so that's where this all began. It had alot of people listed in it so I decided to move them from here. Looking at Butcher (disambiguation) I realized that it had a very large number of people with the surname so I moved them to Butcher (surname). I think butcher is much clearer now with 3 clean and distinct articles --Hutcher (talk) 20:44, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

After reviewing the article I think it's fair now to remove the note about no citations and a non-wiki style
