How Much To Buy A Whole Cow
Farmers who raise cattle for beef often use the term "freezer beef" for the meat that they sell. The term is used interchangeably with bulk or wholesale beef. It means that you've bought beef in whole, half-, or quarter-portions from the cattle raised. You are buying beef that is less than 24 months of age. These are heifers and steers. The generic term most people are familiar with is cow.
Beef farmers have different costs per pound for whole, half-, and quarter-beef. Some beef farmers factor in a separate fee per pound for processing or it's already included in their pricing. Others may have a set processing fee. Either way, it's a fee that is paid to the processor.
Per pound prices at Brost Farms in Monroe are: $4.55 for whole beef, $4.65 for a half and $4.75 for a quarter beef. The cost is based on the total hanging weight. The actual physical amount of beef that you take home will be about 30% less of the hanging weight and will up that base price.
The $6.64 is the price per pound for all the cuts of meat, from ground beef to roasts and steaks that you are taking home. This is where some of the savings come in because you're paying the same price for ground beef as you are for T-bone steaks, whole roasts, and tenderloin.
I just reserved my 1/4 share. Super Excited!! I spoke with Stefan, the owner and rancher,great guy and thoroughly answered all of my questions and walked me through the whole process. Keep up the great work.
When planning our 2 weeks visit in PA (coming from rural England and obsessed with quality food) we decided to look into local sources of grass pastured meats.Beaver Brook Ranch came to our attention and we contacted Stefan to inquire about possible online order while still in UKHe came up with an up to date selection of available meat cuts and we placed our order that was delivered on the day of our arrival to PA.Fantastic quality with some great breakfast ideas which made our life so much easier( with self-catering and special dietary requirement as well as limited time for cooking when on the go)I would especially recommend Beaver Brook Ranch sausages, bacon and minute steaks.Thanks so much Stefan & teamI cannot praise the service highly enough!

Up to 50 years ago, dry aged beef was the norm, then with the advent of increased efficiencies in beef processing and transportation, lost the dry aging process. Dry-aging beef is essentially allowing whole or primal cuts of beef to hang in a humidity controlled environment with a constant flow of air in temperatures between 34 -36 degrees for an extended period of time.
For our North Carolina customers we offer whole cow of meat which is roughly 300-400 pounds of beef. We simply ask that you put a deposit down of $550.00 to reserve and the remainder due at the time of delivery.
The cost for a whole cow is approximately $7.50/lb including processing. This cost covers the cost of processing. While this is quite a bit more expensive than some beef purchased at the grocery store, the price per lb of protein is very competitive (with grassfed beef you are getting a higher protein product). Think of it this way: with grass fed, grass finished beef, most of the excess fat is cut out before you get it.

There's this incredible mystery surrounding the cost of buying a whole cow or even half. It feels almost too overwhelming and by the time you hear hanging weight and live weight or take home weight, you're just ready to throw your hands up and say never mind.
The answer There is no specific answer we can offer right now and here's why. At the end of the day, it really boils down to how much the LIVE weight was of your cow, but your Rancher will most likely go by hanging weight. I know, not much help, right
The question at the end of the day that is important to know, what is the LIVE weight of your animal That is how you will get a better beat on how much your investment is going to be, but the Rancher, knowing his target weights for his animals, will give you a ballpark.

This is also a yet-to-be-seen guesstimate. I was recently talking with a friend who farms. She has 3 small children and said that a whole cow lasts her family of five about 12-18 months. I have a family twice that size with adults, teens, almost teens, lots of elementary-aged kiddos, and some littles. My best estimate at this time is an entire cow will last us about 9 months. I joke about that in my new cow buying video because most good things take about 9 months around here, ha! 59ce067264
