Side of Beef

A whole or half beef — the most economical option!

Price is $3.95/lb hanging weight for a whole beef and $4.20/lb hanging weight for a half beef, plus butcher/processing fees. Our cattle hang at about 700 lbs; and after processing removes most of the bones, we get approximately (this is an estimate) 440 lbs of individually Cryovac-packaged meat per animal. So half a beef is approximately $1470, and a whole animal is around $2765. The processing cost for a whole animal typically runs a little over $700, so processing cost for half is about $350. As a result, when you order a whole beef, you get all the cuts for less than the retail price of our ground beef. (The weights are estimates. Exact hanging weights are determined at processing.)
