Wishbones (pulley bones), with covering muscle and skin tissue (figure 3-8), are
severed from the breast approximately halfway between the end of the wishbone (which
is the clavicle) and the front point of the breastbone (the cranial process of the sternal
crest) at the hypocledial ligament to a point where the wishbone joins the shoulder.
Neck skin is not included.

Halves (figure 3-9) are prepared by making a full-length back and breast split of
the carcass so as to produce approximately equal right and left sides.
