We sell 50 lb boxes of ground sirloin for $350
The ground sirloin is packaged in 1.5 lb packages, and double wrapped in freezer paper. Ground sirloin is different from ground beef because the entire cow is made into burger, not just the chuck. This allows for the meat to be more tender and flavorful.
Beef is currently $6.15/lb. This includes the processing fees of cutting, double wrapping, labeling, freezing of the meat, and boxes for transportation.
A $300 deposit is required at the time of purchase and the balance is due at pick up. Prices are based on hanging carcass weight. Carcass weight is the weight of the beef once the hide, head, hoofs, and organs have been removed. Carcass weights vary from 500-800 lbs on average. For example, if your steer had a 600 lb carcass weight, your cost for the whole steer would be $3,690.00 ($6.15 x 600 = $3,690.00).
There is an approximate 35% weight loss between the carcass weight and what the final boxed product is. This is due to shrinkage from hanging, aging, boning, trimming, etc.
