    That’s a lot of beef!

    I’ve contemplated purchasing a side of beef, but haven’t done so yet. We don’t eat a lot of ground beef, just the steaks, roasts and such. I was going to call a few butchers and farms to see if you can customize a bit, but haven’t got that far.

    enjoy those big ol T-bones!!!!!!

      We have a 1/4 being processed and a hog scheduled for next month.

        Beautiful. We have thought about doing that pretty often; now, with the shortages and everything, we are closer than ever to pulling the trigger.

            I'm definitely thinking we're gonna head in that direction as well. May try raising a hog though. Problem is all the chest freezers are sold out cause of the virus!

              My wife was just talking me into buying 1/4 steer (~150-175lbs) @ $2.65-2.75lb this summer. I think I'm sold as well. My local store has [intentionally or unintentionally, regardless] raised the price of ground beef to $4.29/lb. Boo.

                Like everything in jersey...its more expensive here. Avg price i see is about $4/lb and then there are processing fees on top of that. If i could get it for $2.75 id jump

                grantgallagher that price does have a 'hanging & processing' fee on top of it, but still, $4 plus fees is crazy. Sorry to hear that.

              My uncle had a beef farm and our families split a steer every year.
              marshall pics sum it up, have a huge freezer it fills up fast.
              But the best meat custom cut to your liking if you know what your doing.
              A neighbour was a butcher and did the cutting for a couple of cuts.

                When I was in Jr High - college we fed out cattle to sell as 1/4, 1/2, and whole cows. Didn't start buying beef in the store until I was in my late 20s, and even then we'd do 1 for family every couple of years. I occasionally look around, but finding someone who feeds them out the way I want them fed, and doesn't cost too much, has been more work than I've wanted to put in. I need to take some time and go visit some places around the area. Plus I don't know about the butchers anymore. The ones we used are gone. The one I know of currently is too far away to want to go to regularly... *sigh*

                  10-4 on the butchers, our guy is in his 90's now, still extremely active but just not into meat cutting anymore.
