What will each side of beef yield?

Each half of beef will yield a certain amount of each cut based on both the anatomy and the size of each animal.  For instance:

There will only be one (1) Rump Roast, one (1) Pikes Peak Roast, and one (1) Brisket per side of beef.  You have the option (and we suggest) to have them cut in half, which would yield you two (2). 

The other roasts included will determined by how much meat is available in that area of the animal. 

The number of steaks available are determined by how thick you want them cut and how many that particular cut of meat will yield.  If you have them cut thinner, you will have more steaks and vice versa.  The bigger the animal, typically the more steaks you will get.  

As far as round steak; each side of beef can yield quite a few.  We suggest grinding half of the round steaks as hamburger and tenderizing the remaining half as round steaks. 

Anything you DO NOT want will be will ground up for hamburger.   

Extras:  You can also get the delicacy organs such as the tongue, heart and liver.  Sometimes the butcher will include it without you asking for it.  It makes for great fishing bait if you get them but don't want them!  There is no extra charge for these items if you get them.

*There is an extra upcharge if you decide to have the entire animal ground for hamburger. 

Beef is hung and dry aged for a minimum of 10 days before butchering.  All cuts are vacuum sealed and frozen before pickup with the exception of hamburger patties, which are wrapped in paper.
