I don't have a grinder. I buy my chicken, turkey and beef with the bone already ground it. But the bones are not ground up too fine.
Keep in mind that if you are going to grind chicken and turkey necks/backs you probably won't need a higher end grinder but if you are going to do beef, you will need a high end one and that is usually very expensive. The beef bones are very hard and will break down your grinder quite fast.
To get the proper amount of calcium, just feeding beef bones probably won't be enough. Not only that but it's more likely that your Hav will swallow a larger piece of bone causing problems. I'm not talking about recreational bones.
For feeding rmb, not everyone has a place to feed chicken backs and necks as it can make a mess. Grinding them up and mixing in with the meat makes it easier.
Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...
