Grass Fed Whole Beef Based on an 350 – 400 LB Hanging Carcass Weight. Hanging Carcass Weight is the weight of the beef once the hide, head, hoofs and organs have been removed, BUT prior to cutting the individual steaks, roasts, ground beef, etc. Our hanging Carcass Weights vary between 350 – 400 LBS on the average. The cost for a half beef is $6.50 per pound, (HCW). For example, a 350 LB carcass would cost $2,275.00 ($6.50 x 350 = $2,275.00) and a 400 LB carcass would cost $2,000.00 ($6.50 x 400 = $2,000.00). Quarter and Eighth beefs are available and increase by $0.25 per LB with each lower increment. The net yield varies from animal to animal, and we usually yield up to 70% on our beef cattle. There is some waste (like having a whole fish cut at the fish market) that is not salvageable or usable. Our grass fed Angus cattle tend to be leaner so you end up with a higher net yield to your freezer. Approximately 277.50 net lbs to your freezer (based on 400 LB HW).
