When purchasing a whole or side of beef, you pay $3.20 per pound hanging weight. Hanging weight is the weight of the meat after slaughter. Hanging weight of a whole steer is approximately 500 to 600 pounds and 250 to 300 lbs for a side. You also pay a processing fee to the USDA packaging plant. This fee varies depending on how much bone is removed and the type of wrap used. Fees are approximately $250 for a side and $500 for a whole beef.
If you choose to have most of the cuts without bone, the weight of the meat for your freezer will become significantly less than hanging weight. On average, the actual meat you recieve is 60% of hanging weight.
Whole: hanging weight 550 lbs @ $3.20 = $1760 plus processing fee
Side: hanging weight 275 lbs @ $3.20 = $880 plus processing fee.
Individual cuts (frozen) can be purchased at our farm store.
