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 your processing will be added onto your final beef price, to make things simpler. Your beef can either be delivered to a central point( please see delivery page for details) or picked up from the processor in Fowler.
For 2021, deposits and final payments can be paid by cash, check or credit card.
Payments can be made, up to the point of beef pick up and are refundable, minus the deposit.

2021 BEEF PRICES
All figures are based on average hanging weights and will vary. Processing prices are based on Jensen's Jan. 2021 prices and may increase in the future. Discounts are applied to the ending total in the fall. Check out the discount page for more details.
This year, we are going to estimate the average hanging weight 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 (650- 700#), average (about 750#), above average (770-830#) and above+ (850 +)
For simplicity, my calculations below are based on the average 750# hanging weight and will vary.
WHOLE BEEF: $3.70/LB. hanging weight ($3.35/lb. w/discounts)
$3,305.00 beef&processing (w/discounts) on 750# whole * 500 lbs. packaged beef
Approx. $4.41 / hanging lb. w/ beef & processing costs.
HALF BEEF: $3.85/LB. hanging weight ($3.50/lb. w/discounts)

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.
