Important Information

Price is based on hanging weight, which is the weight of the carcass after initial slaughter and processing. This weight is provided to us by the butcher and is typically around 60% of the live weight. The carcass will hang at the butcher for two weeks for proper aging after which it is processed and packaged into the finished cuts. The yield of finished cuts you will receive is typically around 60 - 65% of the hanging weight. The total price includes all processing and packaging costs. 

For example, if an animal weighs 1000lbs* the hanging weight will be approximately 600lbs. For this example, the share options are broken down below. 

Whole Share:

  • 600lbs hanging weight

  • Total cost $3,600 (600lbs x $6.00/lb)

  • Total cost $1,950 (300lbs x $6.50/lb)
