We estimate the calves will weigh between 825 - 875 lbs. They
will be approximately 14 to 20 months old and finished on grass.
Typically, after slaughter, the carcass will weigh considerably
less than before. The percentage remaining can be estimated: 58 to 65 percent.
After processing, your table ready meat will weigh
less than the carcass did before processing. The percentages of closely-trimmed, mostly boneless cuts remaining
from dressed weight can be estimated at 65 to 75 percent.
For Example: Whole Animal:
If the hanging weight is 500
lbs x $4.25/lb = $2,125.00
This is only an estimate. Exact weights are determined at processing time. Also, additional charges may be incurred if special cuts are requested. Our normal cuts are listed below
in the box.
Following is an example of types of cuts and amount
of pieces (for hanging weight of around 500 lbs). Choice cuts were selected and remainder to make
better grade ground beef. These cuts can vary depending upon your choice at processing.
