Just paid for my annual half beef. 384# hanging weight was $1036.00. Another $325 for processing, I'm guessing. If it is anything close to the quality of the last one, I will be a happy camper!

We have usually bought at least a hindquarters.
I was going to buy 2 hindquarters, but it became absurdly expensive.
I understand that everything has a price tag, and I donít begrudge a farmer making a profit.
But there were charges for transportation, slaughter, hanging weight, cutting, vacuum seal, and cooler/freezer.
I have never incurred charges stacked like that.
The price per pound was going to be ridiculous.

There is a local supermarket that has very good prices for beef. I bought 50# of T bones and Porterhouse steaks for $3.99 a pound last month. Cut fresh to your order in the store.

Cost me that much to have quartered deer boned and ground, plus some cubed steak.

less than 3.50 here hanging weight includes processing. ( i dont remember the exact number) or it did a few months ago when i bought one

I never paid for deer processing. i dont remember the first time i helped butcher an animal i was so young. uncle had the butcher set up. he is dead now. cousins got his stuff. he was set up to hang and age. had a commercial meat band saw and a grinder.

i could do a beef if i needed to, boning it out, but honestly for what you get i dont mind paying for processing.

After paying hanging weight, what % do you lose in bone?

Ive often said if a person wants to eat meat, they should be required to kill the animal and help process it. It would be appreciated much more and not taken for granted.

you lose about 30% gary. Assuming you want some steaks and roasts to be bone in. A lot of that 30% is water. The meat dries up a bit during aging

I'm just over here eating a cull cow I did myself, probably around a buck a pound into it.

I will say, if it was only about the money, I could buy it in bulk from Sam's club for less money. However, the beef I am getting would grade prime every day of the week. They also vacuum seal everything but the burger in very heavy plastic. I had no vacuum bag failures on any of the last half of beef after a year of being banged around in the freezer. In the end, it's probably a wash as far as price goes, if I have to package meat from Sam's or purchase the half from my cousin. There is no comparison in quality, however! For the record, I have never taken any wild game to a meat processor. I figure, if I can skin a few thousand animals a year, processing a couple deer is a piece of cake. laugh

While I agree with you we all don't live where it will stay cold enough to leave it hang outside. So I'm planning I n a walk in cooler or refrigated trailer. But that's a bit of money I have not set a side for it yet.
