BEEF IT'S WHATS FOR DINNER
ALL GRASS FED AND GRASS FINISHED
ALL BEEF..........$6.49 PER POUND
As a co-op member you pay 6.49 per pound of the hanging weight of the animal. That is the same weight that the butcher charges us for processing. The term hanging weight is the weight of the carcass after the head, tail, skin, legs and insides have been removed from the animal. That is the portion that is left hanging for dry aging. You will then have a slight weight loss from that carcass from the unwanted fluids draining from the meat while aging. There will also be some weight loss for bone removal on the roasts and fat trimming on the steaks. That is a minor weight loss that is required for quality of your meat.
Here is an example of a steer and what you can expect so you can make your choice on what size order you should place.
Based on a steer with a live hoof weight of 1200 lbs it will generally come out to a hanging weight of 500 lbs. And then this is how the sections would break down for your ordering.
1/8 = 62 lbs. @ $6.49 = $402.38
1/4 = 124 lbs. @ $6.49 = $804.75
1/2 = 248 lbs. @ $6.49 = 1609.52
That comes out to about 50% of what you would have spent at the local grocery store for the same meat except you have no idea where it came from or what was put in it.
All orders receive the same cuts of beef, the only difference being the weight amount that you choose when you place your order.
We do what is called a southern cut on all orders. That gets the most steaks and premium cuts because it is being shared with other members.
Grass fed beef is very very lean and requires slower cooking.
Ground beef is packaged in 1 lb packages, Steaks are 1 to a package. All meat is double wrapped for long freezer life but we would rather you order smaller section and order every couple months then having meat in your freezer for a year..that way you are always eating fresh beef...
REMEMBER YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE AS TO WHAT YOU EAT
ALL BEEF IS GRASS FED AND GRASS FINISHED
