In case you’ve ever wanted to know what you get when you buy a side of beef, here it is:
Keep in mind, each cow is different just like each person is different. This is a grass-fed cow, which produces less poundage than a grain-finished cow. Also, keep in mind that my farmer gave me more liver because apparently nobody wants that. No clue why, it’s some of the most nutritious meat you can buy.
|Side of Beef||Number of Packages||Pounds|
|Eye of Round||3||4.215|
Also, we saved a little over $100. Here is the price that these cuts retail for at this particular farm. These cuts are actually way more expensive at a lot of places, especially retail like Whole Foods.
|Side of Beef||Pounds||Number of Packages||Usual Price/Lb||Total Price|
|Eye of Round||4.215||3||7||29.505|
So, as you can see, this beef retails for $1571.42, and we paid $1450. Not bad! Saved $121.42.
Here are some wonderful charties. I love charts.
Aaand that’s all I got for now. As you can see, a side of beef is:
1) a lot of ground beef
2) saves a fair amount of money, about 8% of the cost
3) ensure you will have a stock full of beef at all times (until the next one)
4) is really fun to post pictures of and unload
5) is really fun to blog about.
The end! Thanks for stopping by.
