FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

  • What is hanging weight?  “Hanging weight” is the weight of the animal after the slaughter process which removes the head, internal organs, hooves, hide.  You can expect a “take home weight” in packaged meat of 60%-70% of the hanging weight, depending on the cuts.
  • How much meat will I take home?  A whole beef ‘take home’ weight is about 250-350lbs depending on the animal, a half is about 130-157lbs, and a quarter 60-85lbs.  We will estimate as close as possible at the beginning, but please remember that the final weights will vary and we can’t give you an exact number until the butcher calls your order is ready.
  • How much freezer space do I need?  For each 25 pounds of packaged beef you will need about 1 cubic foot of freezer space.  So if you order a quarter of beef, you need about 5 cubic feet for a half of a beef, you’ll need about 10 cubic feet for a whole.
  • How much do I pay for the beef?  We will contact you with the exact cost of your beef.  Estimated in 2020, a quarter of beef, processing included, costs about $670-$870.  A half of a beef costs approximately $1300-$1700 and a whole animal approximately $2800-$3200.  Please keep in mind, these are averages and will vary based on the hanging weight of your beef.

Our recommended cut out contains the following cuts.  However, we would be glad to work with you to customize your butchering.  Please keep in mind, these are averages and will vary based on the hanging weight of your beef.
