1000 lb. Steer = 430 lbs. Cuts (approx.)

Not all of the cow makes it to the table. On average, a 1,000 pound steer will only weigh approximately 61% of its live weight once it is dressed and hanging in the cooler. The remaining 61% is often referred to as the “Hanging Weight” or the weight “On the Rail”. This approximately 39% weight loss happens during the slaughter and dressing procedure that removes the animals blood, hide, head, hooves, viscera, lungs, and heart. But the loss doesn’t stop there. Once the carcass is on the rail it begins to lose moisture and shrink, which accounts for additional weight loss. The fat and bone removal during the cutting combined with the shrinkage on the rail account for an additional 18% loss. In summary, a steer weighing 1,000 pounds live will yield an average of around 430 pounds of retail cuts such as steaks, roasts, ribs, etc.

Our cattle are bred, born and raised on our farm with quality genetics, marbling and excellent care in mind.  Our hormone-free calves are started on grass pasture and finished on our own hay and feed purchased from a local feed mill.  We believe this process not only produces the best quality meat, but it also allows us to support a local business!

We offer meat in mixed quarters, halves or whole.  A full grown steer is approximately 1250 (live) pounds, we sell based on the hanging weight which averages about 650-750 pounds (thus a quarter of beef will yield you approximately 150 pounds of meat assuming some cuts are bone in.)

We sell quarter, halves and wholes.

Processing is paid separately to the processor.

Summary: Buying a half of beef is the better buy as a consumer. It give you the availability to have larger cuts of meat because you are breaking the animal down less. It also gives you a better deal on the processing cost.
