What to expect
Each animal will be different in weight, and selected randomly for each customer. Hanging weights will range on a Whole Beef from 180 to 300 lbs per beef depending on body size. So please specify if you’d like a large, medium, or small one. Our average weight is 250 lbs for a whole beef. So with that average you can figure what to expect (but your end price will vary depending on carcass hanging weight and cut selection).
The information below is provided from an example of a Regular Package – (4 steaks per package) Based on average 157 lbs yield:
Ground Beef = 40 – 2# packages
Roasts = 7 – 4# packages
Steak = 15 – 2# packages
Ribs = 4 – 3# packages
Soup Bones = 3 – 2# packages
You can customize this package. If you would like more beef, please specify which cuts you’d like to be ground (i.e. no ribs, less roasts, etc). Please remember that customizing your package will change your final take-home weight of your order. In general, if you reduce the number of bone-in cuts in your order your final take-home weight will be reduced as those bones and trimmings are discarded and the beef off of the bone is ground and packaged.
***Number of weight and size of package will vary with each carcass.
