Ground Beef Orders Delivery Date: Fall 2017
Ground Beef orders are similar to Sides of Beef orders. The difference is that you only receive ground beef. Pricing for initial sale is based on the hanging weight so you don’t pay for the skin, head, or stomach. You can buy either a whole, half, or quarter beef. Prices are as follows:
$3.49/lb on hanging weight ($1.49/lb carcass weight, $1.00/lb processing fee, $1.00/lb shipping)
What to expect:
Each animal will be different in weight, and selected randomly for each customer. Carcass weights will vary from 600 to 900 pounds. The average is around 700 lbs on the rail. You can expect 60% of this weight as finished package weight.
All ground beef orders come in 2 pound packages and fully frozen.

Other Cuts that are at no extra charge (Optional)
When you pay $3.49/lb on the hanging weight, 60% of that is actual yield as the take home amount. The chart above gives examples based on average hanging weights, but your carcass weight will vary by animal.
We are required to pre-sell our livestock by USDA federal regulations. As an example, if you buy one half we find someone else to buy the other half before we butcher. That way we are selling the animal live on the hoof.
