A typical 'half' of beef will weigh around 300 pounds, a whole is around 600 pounds. Of that, about 60-65% will be meat that is packaged, so you will recieve around 180-200 pounds for the half and around 400 pounds for the whole.

Sides of beef will be available in October and November. Box lots and individual cuts are available year round.

A normal distribution is about half steaks and roasts and half hamburg, if you want more hamburg that can be arranged.
