Beef and Pork details

A beef half is about 200 lbs of take home beef.  At $6.25/lb a 200 lb beef half would cost $1250 total. A beef quarter is about 100 lbs of take home beef. At $6.50/lb a beef quarter would cost $650. Beef quarters are standardized, however beef halves can be customized(you choose how it is cut). Beef is charged by actual take home weights. Actual weights are not known until the beef has been slaughtered, cut, packaged and weighed. This occurs about a day before delivery.

I offer ground beef at $4.75/lb when ordering 100 lbs or more and $5.00/lb for 50 lbs or more. You choose the package size. I pay all butchering fees, sales taxes as well as anything else you can think of.

Pork is sold by hanging weight. A pork half is $4.10 per pound of hanging weight which is about $5.50 per pound of take home meat. A pork half weighs about 75 lbs. The cost of a Pork half will be about $412.

The superior quality of my Grass-Fed Beef is due to my ability to use the best genetics for marbling. Thru the use of artificial insemination I am able to use bulls in the top 1% for their marbling score to breed as many of my cows as I can. The remaining cows are bred to my herd bull, who is a son of a bull in the top 1% for marbling. Marbling is the fat in the beef, not the outside. The bulls I use put more fat in the beef.

Your beef will dry age for increased tenderness and flavor in the butcher’s cooler for 14 days. Beef halves will then be cut to your specifications. A typical customer might want 3lb roasts(for a family of 4 or less) and 1 1/4 inch steaks. You will get approximately 44% ground beef, 35% roasts and 21% steaks from you half or whole. Some customers will want more ground beef and will prefer to have their Sirloin or Round Roasts in ground beef. You will fill out a questionnaire about how you want your beef cut. Everything is vacuum sealed and frozen and will last more than 2 years in the freezer.

Quarter customers cannot choose how their beef is cut.

You will get 1.25 inch steaks and 3lb roasts.
