Buy in bulk and save with a whole beef custom processed to your specifications.
Final price is calculated based on $4/lb hanging weight for a whole share. Estimated final price is between $2,400 and $3,200 with estimated final hanging weight between 600 and 800 lbs.
Final price will be determined by final weight. Once item is weighed, you will receive an invoice with the amount due minus your deposit. You will receive a receipt for the final charge. Processing fees will be paid directly to the processor at pickup.
For a 1000-pound steer, the approximate hanging weight would be 600 pounds, giving you a purchase price of $2,400. With that estimated hanging weight, processing fees will be $385, giving you a total purchase price of $2,785.
With a typical yield of 66% of the hanging weight, you should take home about 396 pounds of cut beef for a final cost of $7.03 per pound. Your cost is based on hanging weight and your final yield will vary due to moisture loss during dry aging and your specific cut selections.
Each piece will be vacuum sealed in clear packaging and labeled with the name of the cut.
Many people ask how much freezer storage space they will need. As a general rule of thumb you should plan for 1 cubic foot of freezer space per 35-40 pounds of meat. (1 cubic foot of space is roughly the size of a full large brown grocery bag.) For example, a half beef share final product weighs approximately 190-210 pounds. So you should plan for 4.75-5.5 cubic feet.
