Here you will find truly fresh local beef and not the grocery or meat market stuff that comes from who knows where. You are always welcome to come out and actually see our operation. Always shop with your local farmer, whether it be us or someone else that you know. You deserve the best for your family.
We will be taking reservations for Fall 2022 beef soon.
Can't handle this much at a time, see our "shop"page for our other offerings.
Beef Terminology: Live Weight: The weight of a live beef animal before slaughter, also call, "on the hoof" weight.
Carcass Weight: The weight after slaughter and after processing to remove inedible parts: hide, head, hooves, etc. Also called, "hanging weight". Slaughter and processing could reduce live weight by 40%.
Finished Weight: The weight after final processing; remove excess fat, discard unusable bones, etc. What you actually "take home". Final processing could reduce carcass weight by 40%.
Using the above figures, a 1,100 pound Live Weight animal would have: a 660 pound Carcass Weight (1,100 lbs. less 40%); and 396 pounds of Finished Weight (660 less 40%).
