Pricing and Ordering Process
$175 deposit to reserve a quarter beef. $3.00 per pound hanging weight plus processing. Processing not included.
After your deposit is placed, your spot is reserved. A confirmation email will be delivered with the specific date your order is scheduled for processing at the butcher. Because we will not know the actual hanging weight until the animal is harvested, an invoice will be sent via email of the final outstanding balance that day. Once the animal is harvested, it typically takes 2-4 weeks for the animal to be dry aged, cut and packaged. Outstanding balance (total cost-less deposit) is due prior to you taking delivery of the final product. Hanging weight cost is paid to Springvale Angus. You may pay by check, card or cash. The processing costs are additional and are to be paid directly to the butcher, Cal Packers. They accept cash or check. Processing costs are typically $160* for a quarter. Actual processing costs can vary depending on types of cuts or specialty items you order. Expected total cost for a 1/4 Steer is $750-$850 including processing depending on actual weight and processing customization.
The "Live Weight" of an animal is the weight of the animal while it is alive, or "on the hoof." The "Live Weight" of our finished Angus steer is approximately 1400 lbs.* at the time it is processed.
The "Hanging Weight" of an animal is the weight of the carcass after most of the non-edible portions are removed ie. hoofs, hide, some blood, head, organs, etc. The "Hanging Weight" is typically 60%* of the live weight. For example, if the steer had a 1400 lb* "Live Weight", the expected "Hanging Weight" would be 840 lbs.*
The "Take Home Weight" is the final product that you, the consumer, will take home from the processer. The "Take Home Weight" is typically 60%* of the "hanging weight." The 40%* loss of the "Hanging Weight" is due to water loss during the aging process (10-14 days) and trimming of fat and bone during the cutting process. This also varies depending on the type of cuts that you order as some cuts may be bone in or some may be boneless. The "Take Home Weight" for a full (1400 lb.* Live Weight) steer is typically 500 lbs.* for a "Whole beef", 250 lbs.* for a "half beef", and 125 lbs.* for a "quarter beef."
"Split Half" relates to orders of a quarter beef. If you order a quarter beef, what you will receive is commonly called a “split half.” Because, the cuts of meat in the front half differs dramatically from the back half, you will get an even split of cuts from both the front quarter and hind quarter for fairness for each customer.
