FAQs

What is "hanging weight"? 


Hanging weight refers to the weight of the beef carcass before it is processed. Our goal is to have our beef ready for market at approx. 1,000 lbs. live weight, which, on average, yields about 600 lbs. hanging weight for a whole beef. A half beef would be around 300 lbs., and a 1/4 beef would be around 150 lbs. Because each animal weighs slightly above or slightly below this ideal weight at market, this is a good ballpark figure to go by when considering how much you may have to pay.


How much will processing cost?


Processing fees on beef are based on hanging weight. You only pay for the portion you order (half or 1/4 of processing price). Processing on a 1/4 beef usually runs between $85 to $130, depending on your specific processing instructions. 


How much freezer space will I need?


A 1/4 beef will yield around 100-110 lbs. of meat for your freezer once processing is complete. A 1/2 beef will yield around 210-220 lbs. actual meat, and a whole beef will equal approx. 400-410lbs. of beef for your freezer. Again, these amounts are approximate, depending on the live weight of the animal at processing.
