Hanging and Take-Home Weight

Hanging Weight - What? Why?

WHAT -- Hanging weight (aka carcass weight) is the weight of the entire animal after all of the internal organs, hide, head, hoofs, and tail have been removed.

WHY -- We sell grass fed beef in bulk to get you the highest quality for the best value. To avoid additional processing costs, each package you receive is not individually weighed. You are buying part of an animal before processing.

Take-home weight is weight of beef you receive; comparable to weights you'd buy retail.

How much will be in my order?

  • Take-home weight: 48 lbs. (based on 600 lbs hanging)
  • Cost: $450 (75 lbs. hanging x $5.99/lb)
  • Take-home $/lb: 9.38 / lb
