Beef Rings

DockPotato | Apr 8, 2010 09:51 AM

Before refrigeration was common a different member family would share out a whole beef with other members of the ring every week.The arrangement is described in this audio clip:

I've first heard them mentioned by people with roots in Huronia, certainly not where I grew up in Southern Ontario or from Westen Canada where our family settled.

Were they common elsewhere or were there other arrangements for fresh beef in warm seasons? Google turns up nothing.
