Beef price is based on the hanging weight. Customer pays Canaan Meats directly for the processing when you pick up at their location:

Freezer Beef Purchasing Example:
Our beef cattle are smaller than the typical commodity industry and an average carcass hanging weight will be approximately 660 Lbs. (The range is 500-750). This weight is with only the bones, fat, connective tissue and edible meat remaining to hang.
So using a 330 lb. half beef example at $4.80/lb. here is what you would pay:
330x $4.80 = $1584 That is the total you would pay Green Vista Farm LLC for the beef in this example.
(This also gives you a $50 credit towards whole or half hog, a whole beef gives you a $100 credit towards a whole hog)
After final processing with bone and excess fat removed you will take home approximately 65% of the hanging weight as edible meat. (This weight would not include organs or marrow bones which you are entitled to your portion if you choose, just be sure to ask the processor)
Processing is not included in this price but here is an example using Canaan Meats, our custom processor's current pricing schedule:
Half Beef slaughter fee: $60
Basic processing: 66 cents/Lb. by hanging weight. This includes dry aging carcass for approximately 2 weeks, cutting out steaks and roasts per your custom order, taking trim to your desired fat content and making into ground beef, vacuum packing, flash freezing and boxing up for you to take home.(Extra costs examples would be cubing steaks at $.50/lb, and vacuum packed patties at $.70/lb in addition to basic processing)
So in our example 660 lb. carcass if you purchased a half beef and had 20 lbs. of ground beef made into patties it would be:
$218 (330 lb. x $.66 basic processing) + $60 slaughter fee + $14 (20 x $.70 patty charge) = $292 total- This is what you would pay Canaan Meats in this example for the processing when you pick the packaged, frozen beef up at their location. (E.R.Boliantz in Mansfield also does some of our custom work and their pricing is similar)
