Buying Wholesale – Fill Your Freezer
Wholesale beef is priced and sold by hanging weight. This is the weight of the cattle after it has been slaughtered and before it’s processed. After butchering the hanging weight will be reduced by 25-30%. This is due to moisture loss during the 3 weeks of dry aging, the cutting process and the removal of bones.
The following weights are estimates only and are simply to help you determine the approximate cost of the beef.
Size | Hanging Weight (approximate) | Price/lb.
- Whole | 800 lbs. | $3.00
- Half | 400 lbs. | $3.00
- Quarter | 200 lbs. | $3.25
Wholesale beef orders require a non-refundable $100 deposit upon placing your order. The balance is due to Brad’s Farm Market once the hanging weight is determined.
Prices do not include butchering fees, which are additional and paid directly to the butcher. These prices vary depending on the cuts you choose. An approximate butchering fee for a whole would be $655, a half would be $330, and a quarter would be $180.
