• Angus Beef

Black Angus Beef
Beef is sold on hanging weight, the weight after butchering, but before cutting into into individual pieces. Depending on your instructions to the butcher you'll take home 55% - 70% of the hanging weight.

The cost of Angus (grain finished) beef per pound is $4.80, plus approximately $.60 per pound for processing.

An average beef is around 700 lbs.

A whole beef (including processing) will cost in the neighborhood of $3780, a half $1890, a quarter around $945.
