What is hanging weight?
When you buy bulk beef you are paying by the hanging weight.
The hanging weight is how much the carcass weighs after the initial slaughter and processing. This means the weight after the hide, head, hooves, and organs have been removed.
Our anticipated price for the year is $4.15/lb for sides and $4.40/lb for a quarter hanging weight.
How much meat am I taking home?
An average hanging weight for a JakoPure beef side is 300 pounds. Of that, only 60-65% is take-home meat. The majority of the 40-45% of “waste” is large bones. During the hanging/aging process the beef also shrinks about 4%, which accounts for some of the loss.
What are the processing fees?
Is it grass fed and finished?
Absolutely! Our beef is 100% grass fed and finished. We also taste test each side or quarter to ensure flavor and tenderness.
