The Ordering Process:
As orders are collected amounting to a whole steer or hog, the process begins, we do not sell inventoried meat, all meat is sold to order. Therefore, we ask for a deposit with the order of $150 per quarter.
How is the meat packaged?
After the meat has hung for a few weeks it is cut into portions vacuum packed and quick frozen
How is the meat priced?
Our prices are all based on the “hanging weight” of the meat. It is important to understand the difference between “live weight”, “hanging weight”, and “boxed weight”.
Live weight is the animal’s weight prior to slaughter, and “hanging weight” is its weight after slaughter and the unusable parts have been removed.
Hanging weight is usually about 60 percent of live weight. The meat is then aged and cut into portions to finally become boxed weight.
Boxed weight is typically about 60 percent of hanging weight because there are further losses due to the cuts desired, aging, and trimming.
