Food for thought….

We’ve been selling a lot of beef lately! It’s really important that everyone is aware just how much beef you’re actually getting after processing. This article goes into detail about processing and how much beef you can expect to take home from the butcher.

When we sell our beef by the quarter, half, or whole, the price is charged on the animals’ hanging weight or "hot hanging weight (hhw)." This is how much the animal weighs "on the hook", or after it’s been slaughtered, skinned, guts, head and front and rear fetlocks removed. When the animal is processed we call it "cut and wrapped" which is how many pounds of actual chilled meat you will end up with. The hot hanging weight IS NOT the same as the chilled take home value!

As this chart from the article shows, a 1200 lb animal is butchered and has a 750 lb hot carcass and once processed and chilled there is approximately 500 lb of total take home beef.

Have a read for more detail and enjoy your beef!!

You won’t get 500 pounds of cut and wrapped boneless beef from a 750 pound carcass. At most you will get 400 pounds. I weigh all my beef after cutting and wrapping since I sell it by the pound.

Tonie these are great people that may have beef for sale. Message and ask

Stealing this

Right Cross Ranch is an operation we have the utmost respect for. The functionality of their cowherd in terms of foot and udder structure and doability is admirable and the genetics we have acquired from them have suited our program well and have had a positive
influence in our own herd. Beyond Jim and Sarah's real world cattle sense, they are genuine, honest people who are a pleasure to work with.

Amanda Elzinga - Pugh & Greg Pugh

"Over the years we've bought several groups of the bred heifers, long yearling bulls and yearling bulls from the Right Cross sales. The Right Cross cattle that we've purchased over the years have been functional, useable cattle that are staying in the herd and paying their way. It's reassuring knowing the cattle you purchase are coming from a no nonsense family oriented ranch."
