Thatís pathetic!
The question is , Are you makpid on Bais Yosef ? 
What about of it was someone who is makpid that the shochet goes to the mikva daily? Has a beard? His wife shaves her head?

Thanks for the meaningful response. Followup question is how should I request it to be cut?
Not very practical as I don't really "tend to use" much meat. DW likes French Roast and minute steak as she's comfortable cooking those in a way that the entire family (more or less) enjoys. The question is what about the rest? How should I have it butchered? What might work out best (maybe we could dedicate something to a DO on my back porch).
Ribs u can do a steaks (how ever thick u like them) and some 2 3 4 bone rib roast, short ribs can be cut a few ways, either square cut (very good for roasting and serving nice portions) u can cut it to rack of "dino" ribs to smoke or cut it in slices for cholent etc...

Its hard to answer when you don't know what you need it for. But keep in mind that taking a side means your getting lots of bones... Depending on the size it will take up at least 2 full shelves of your freezer.

Wow, this. thread.

Just want to say thank you @doodle for your unbiased and meaningful insight into this topic. I don't know where we would be as a society without people like you who ask questions with the sole purpose of understanding another's reasons or beliefs.

And a special shout out to @Yehuda57 @Dan @churnbabychurn @LoLo @gingyguy and others for the best laugh I've had in a while.

(If someone can please put the quotes in the wiki so it reads straight, that'd be great. Pure gold here.)

Nothing is already done. The cows are still walking on all 4. I can request it whichever way I want.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

LOL they are sprinting hearing that they will be slaughtered by a Lubavitcher guy!

what i meant was that they are telling u all the cuts u can get from that part and u can choose whatever u want vs the 2nd quarter u can cut a few diff ways.

Can you give a quick synopsis of what I should be hearing there?

This is done the old way. Where you go to a goyishe place and do your shechita. They take whatever isn't Glatt, as to them it's no different that their non-kosher slaughtering.

As a matter of fact, I recall once hearing the Shochet who's shechting here lament the fact that Shechita is done in Jewish owned places, do it by a goy, and there's no problem if it's not 100% glatt, the goy will take it for his purposes.

I have a friend who used to raise poultry, sheep & cattle on a farm up near Sidney, NY. He would sell the animals at livestock auctions as this was really a side thing for him.

He was once approached by someone who wanted to buy a cow and have it shechted.  My friend is frum and he was on board...until the shochet came and shechted the cow and after inspection said that the cow was a treifah.

The buyer then wanted to back out. I dont know what the end result was, but from that point on my friend only sold his animals to standard slaughterhouses.

There are people who bedavka won't use a towel after the mikvah. (IIRC the makor is that's what the Arizal did.)
