We are raising the beef for this winter on our farm, and they are looking good, as well as being rather tame. For these beeves, we are asking a $200 deposit for each half. The price will be $1.40/lb. live weight,* balance paid when the beef go to the butcher. Also, the customer pays the processing fee, which is $11.50 slaughter fee (for a half) and $.48/ lb. hanging weight, plus extra for special services.** We sell them as whole or halves. A few customers who picked up their beeves, calculated the price for what they took home. It was approximately $3.85-$4.10/lb. This is a tremendous savings from buying parts/cuts, which average $6.51/lb.
*So how much does a steer weigh? Last year our live weight was around 549lbs- 633lbs.
**For a half beef, an approximate cost after processing is $943-$1230.
