  • When buying as a direct consumer, whole, half or quarters, under the custom exempt law, our cows are sold as live weight. Weight determined by the processors certified scales.

  • We prefer to process steers around  950 - 1050 lbs. This assures that your whole order will fit into a family size freezer.

  • The final freezer weight after processing will be approximately 25-30% less than the hanging weight, due to shrinkage from hanging, boning, trimming, etc. This chart is an estimate:
