All Natural Colorado Beef 


QUICK ESTIMATION: We figure 66.66% of the hanging weight ends up as packaged beef for your freezer.  So on a 600 lb. hanging weight whole, you would end up with 400 lbs. of beef.

Beef will be packaged in vacuum sealed packages and labeled with the cut and the weight.

Qtrs are really "split halves" and both qtrs. on a half will be equal.  So if you buy a whole beef and share it with 3 others, all 4 qtrs, will be equal.

1.  This example if for 1/4 beef, with a hanging weight of 168.75 lbs.

It was processed with 'boneless steaks' and all short ribs, soups bones and stew meat was kept (not trimmed and ground into more burger)

To keep track of our estimated package weight, we and our friends weigh out a few (wholes/halves/qtrs.) of beef each year.  In 2013, our beef packaged weight was all between 67-68% of our hanging weight.
