The price per pound for beef is based on hot hanging weight. Hot hanging weight is the weight of the carcass immediately after it has been slaughtered. Most of our cattle will have a hot hanging weight of between 600 and 700 lbs. A 650 lb carcass will yield approximately 400lbs of packaged meat depending on the way you choose to have it cut. Our price includes the processing and packaging of the meat by our USDA Certified Slaughterhouse, The Royal Butcher.
As an example: If you purchased half of a cow and that cow had a hanging weight of 650 lbs, you would be paying for 325 lbs of meat at $6.00/lb, totaling $1,950. The packaged meat that you receive would include every possible cut from your 325 lb half. The packaged weight will be about 35% less than the hanging weight due to loss from deboning and trimming. After accounting for this yield loss, you would receive about 211 lbs of packaged meat. This meat (filet mignon, steaks, roasts, ground beef, and any other cuts you choose) would cost you approximately $9.24 per pound.
