Today the last "swinging beef" distributor Bertolino Beef in Boston closed it's doors. From here on out all the meat in Boston sold by distributors will be boxed beef.
One of our old timers in the office was talking about the old Mass pike offramp. Whenever there was a rollover on the old mass pike off ramp it was trucks of swinging beef because the beef would swing and roll the truck over. Next thing you know the Mass DPW workers would be selling whole cows in Dorchester.
