How many pounds of beef are in a Quarter, Half, or Whole Beef?

Every animal is a little different, but on average you will take home approximately 100 pounds of beef from a quarter beef, 200 pounds from a half beef, and 400 pounds from a whole beef. 

What do you mean by hanging weight?

At approximately $1,262 per half an animal, that means you are paying $6.30/pound for the finished product. What a great deal considering tenderloin runs around $16.00/pound! 

How much room will I need in my freezer?

About 30 pounds of meat will take up a cubic foot of freezer space.
