If I'm going to continue to eat meat, I kind of think this is a good idea. Not that I have any delusions about regularly butchering my own meat, but it does seem like the sort of thing I ought to do at least once so I know what I'm doing when I eat dead critters. It seems like a decent compromise between the standard supermarket meat experience and actually killing animals myself (which would invariably be difficult, since novices would mess it up causing extra suffering to the animals).
Also, knowing how to cut meat would be helpful for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. One way or another.
