We often end up with two weight groups, with half the steers hanging in the 600s and the other half in the 700+ range. I tried to give you an idea of what to expect with the below chart. Just let me know your weight preference, when you put your deposit down. I will also ask for your preference on your cut sheet.
The "lighter" group has a whole beef average hanging weight of 620lbs. and I put all associated costs in blue.
The "heavier" group has a whole beef average hanging weight of 750 lbs. and I put associated costs in dark red.
1. Deciding: from the chart, decide if you would like a quarter, half or whole and if you would prefer your steer to be from the lighter or the heavier group.
a. for those of you using your phones and can't view the below chart:
WHOLE beef= $3.80/hanging lb. (620# average hanging on lighter grp.)=$2,840 (beef+process. w/o discounts)
HALF beef= $3.90/hanging lb. (310# average hanging on lighter grp.)=$1,451 (beef+process. w/o discounts)
QTR beef= $3.95/hanging lb. (155# average hanging on lighter grp.)=$748.75 (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. There is no extra charge if all qtrs. are processed the same.

all prices are based on hanging weight;
we think this is the fairest way for the customer;
hanging weight is supplied by the processor, so there is no room for error on our part.
