Commonly Asked Questions
much freezer space do I need?
a ¼ of a cow you would need approximately 5-8 cubic feet of freezer space
much actual beef do I get from the cow?
average cow will weight about 1200lbs live weight. This will produce
about 530lbs of usable processed meat. The exact amount will depend
on the cuts that you choose when you have it processed.
much does the meat cost?
charge $3.40-$3.80/lb DRESSED HANGING WEIGHT plus processing fees which
are paid directly to the processor. On average, your final cost will
be about $6.00-$8.00/pound. Compare to buying a Rib-Eye steak at a
grocery store for $9.99 on sale and that’s a factory farmed steak!
Please remember that it depends on the final size of the steer and how you
have it cut.
much does the processing the meat cost?
processing charge will vary - but expect to pay 65¢/pound hanging weight.
An example is: hanging weight for 1/2 = 335 lbs x 65¢/pound = $217.75
processing plus the kill fee of $40 so a total of $257.75 for processing
so your total cost would be $257.75 for processing + ($3.55/pound x 335lbs
= $1189.75) for an overall total for 1/2 a steer $1447.00. This of
course will vary depending on the cuts requested but it does give you an
idea of what 1/2 a steer will cost. (Figure 1/2 of that amount would
be for ~1/4 of a steer).
