When to Order
A USDA approved meat-processing plant, which is also an Animal Welfare Approved plant, processes our meat.
Our meat is dry- aged. This enhances its flavor and makes it more tender. Some less tender cuts, such as flank steak, are also mechanically tenderized. The result of this extra processing is a tender and tasty premium beef for you and your family.
Individual cuts are vacuum-sealed and frozen. With proper care, meat in a well-maintained freezer will remain quite tasty for well over a year.
How much to buy
We sell beef by the whole, by the half, or by the split-half. A split-half contains a balanced mix of cuts from the front and back quarters.
A whole beef will give you about 400 pounds of “meat to eat”. A half of beef will give you about 200 pounds, and a split-half about 100 pounds. These are approximate pounds; actual pounds you receive may vary a little depending on the size of the animal and its body composition.
Buying in bulk means you are getting a lot of frozen meat at once, so make sure you have available freezer space. As a general rule, 50 pounds of meat will take up about 2.25 cubic feet of freezer space. Accordingly, a whole beef yielding 400 pounds will take up about 18 cubic feet of freezer space; a half about 9 cubic feet, and a split-half about 4.5 cubic feet.
Customers who do not want to buy a whole beef or a half beef should consider “cow-pooling”. Together, several family members or neighbors buy either a whole or half beef and then divide-up the cuts and store it in their freezers.
What You Receive
Generally, after processing, about your order will include about one-fourth in steaks, one fourth in roasts, brisket and stew meat and the remainder will be in ground beef.
Typical standard cuts are:
- Steaks- Rib eye, KC Strip, filet, sirloin, skirt, flat iron and flank
- Roasts – Chuck, Arm, Rump and Tri-tip
Most often, ground beef totals 180-200 pounds for a whole beef, and 90-100 pounds for a half beef. Ground beef comes in 1 lb. packages.
What you receive from a split half of beef is a balanced selection of its from a half of beef. Each split half contains steaks, roasts, along with 40-50 pounds of ground beef in 1 lb. packages.
You are not limited to standard cuts. Our butchers at the Horrmann Meat Company in Fair Grove , MO will gladly cut your beef to your specifications. For example, you can tell them you want thicker steaks, bone-in or bone-out roasts, and more or less ground beef. Please call them at 417-759-2027 and tell them what you prefer. There is no extra charge for this service.
