A Deposit is placed at the time of your order and the remaining amount is due in the fall after the beef hanging weight has been received from the processor. The cost of processing will be included in the final price unless you plan to pick up your own beef, in which case you would pay your own processing. Your beef can either be delivered -to a central point( please see delivery page for details) or picked up from the processor in Fowler.

***This year, we are going to estimate the average of the steers at 750 lbs. As always we will end up with some variation and I will ask for your preference (later on the cut sheet) of below average (about 700#), average (about 750#), above average (8-850#) and above+ (850 +)
1. AMOUNT: from the chart, decide if you would like a quarter, half or whole.
a. for those of you using your phones and can't view the below chart:
WHOLE beef= $3.80/hanging lb. (750# average hanging )=$3,425.00 (beef+process. w/o discounts)
HALF beef= $3.90/hanging lb. (375# average hanging)=$1,750.00 (beef+process. w/o discounts)
QTR beef= $3.95/hanging lb. (187.50# average hanging)=$903.13 (beef+process. w/o discounts)
2. Sharing: if you plan to buy a whole beef, you may have it left whole, split into halves for no extra charge, or split into quarters. If split into qtrs., the processor charges 10 cents per pound more for processing. In addition to the processor's extra charge....if you would like CUSTOM CUT quarters, please add $50 to your total. However, there is no extra charge if all qtrs. are processed the same.
