QUARTER OF BEEF
When you purchase a quarter of beef you get to customize your types/cuts of meat as well as package sizes. You’ll select whether you want more steaks or ground beef, or maybe you prefer stew meat and stir fry strips over marinating steaks or hamburger. The choices are endless! Together with our butcher’s we will help ask the right questions to get the most out of your side of beef.
Our Kattle Kountry beef comes to you fresh-frozen, meaning immediately after cutting, the beef is frozen. Since beef freezes so well, you’ll lose none of its flavour or texture — and you get the convenience of being able to enjoy our wholesome and nutritious local beef any time!
A quarter of beef is $4.90/lb hanging weight. This includes butchering and custom cutting. Our quarter of beef is a half of a half giving you some of both the delicious front and hind cuts!
Enjoy all of your favourite beef cuts at a reduced retail price when you order a 1/4 of beef. Custom cut to your families needs. You will need approximately 5-6 cu. ft of freezer space.
Some choices will include:
- Steak thickness (3/4”, 1”, 1 1/4”)
- The number of steaks per package
- Roasts size ranging from 3 – 8lbs (Average size for a family of 4 would be 3-4 lbs)
- Hamburger package sizes — packaged in 1, 1.5 and 2 lb packages
At Kattle Kountry, we sell our beef by the hanging weight — which is the weight of a side of beef, hanging in the butcher’s cooler after the head, hide, feet and organs have been removed, but before it is cut into the delicious options for your table.
The yield after cutting the side into usable cuts is approximately 52-60% of the hanging weight. The weight reduction is the result of moisture loss during the aging process, bone removal and the type of cuts you request.
This 250.00 deposit will reserve you a quarter of beef cut to your specifications. This is only a deposit, and will be applied to the purchase price of your beef. Your final payment is due at delivery. This deposit is required to reserve an animal for you. It is non-refundable. If you choose to pay for the entire side up front, the total payment amount will be reconciled once the final hanging weight is known. When your side of beef is ready to be cut, our butcher will call you directly to walk you through your cutting options. Once your meat is ready, we will pick up and arrange deliver right to your door!
Our quarters range in weight from 200-250 lbs hanging weight yielding you between 120-150 lbs of actual meat cuts delivered to your freezer.
Your final total will be calculated once the animal is butchered and the actual hanging weight is determined.
