Default I'm buying a cow to eat...

I'm buying a whole cow to eat form myself. But I wanted to know what else I should ask for from the butcher other than the heart, and tripe.

Are the tail bones good recreational bones? what other bones and organs should I ask for?

Thanks

ask for the pancreas, dogs love it

also the liver, this is quite rich for them but you could divide it up so you are giving a small amount each week.

I bake the liver and chop it into tiny squares, large pea-size as training treats..

I buy oxtails for my dog to chew, so I don't think it would be a problem!

Oh, what about the lungs? Can you dehydrate them yourself, for treats?

You can dehydrate lung. It's really easy, we do it. The lung has very little smell when dehydrating and becomes a nice crunchy but not overly hard treat.

I'd take everything except the head and legs! The thymus(sweetbread) is a gland, my dogs love it, but it is hard to come by.
I don't feed beef bones other than the tail. Takes the dogs awhile to get thru the larger ends.

Haha Thanks Jane,

It might just be easier to ask for that.

When you dehydrate lungs or anything else really do you to it in your oven?

Ah what sucks is the first place I've looked into will give me everything but the tripe. This is the second source that I've contacted (first about a whole cow) that doesn't sell green tripe because the seller had said their products have to be fit for human consumption.
