Naturally Raised Beef Prices for 2009

Well, it's that time of year when I start taking reservations for our naturally raised beef. I've put together the costs of our hay, grain, and other miscellaneous things that go into raising cattle, and have our price list for 2009. You can choose to buy a whole, half, or split half (quarter) of a beef. A detailed price list is at the bottom of the page.

Detailed Beef Pricing
The first row is the cost for raising the beef and is paid directly to Ross Farms before butchering, around the middle of September. The second row is the cost of butchering and cutting and wrapping the meat into smaller portions. This cost is paid to the butcher directly when you pick up your beef. The amount is an estimation because the cost is based on the total pounds of beef. The cost is $0.49/pounds plus $55 per whole beef. The beef will be frozen and packaged when you pick it up. You can pick up your meat approximately 10 days after the butchering begins. The third row is an estimate of how many pounds of beef you will be taking home. Again, this is an estimate, because it is impossible to know how many pounds of beef there are until the butchering is complete. Please let me know if you have any questions!
