A quarter of beef produces about 117 lbs of meat, inclusive of the extras. 107 lbs without the extras.
Savings by getting the quarter bundle instead of each of the items making up a quarter is around 172.50.
Note: Sometimes we are out of a single item and that makes the website say we are out of quarters. Just email me and we will work something out, maybe do a substitution or two.
The breakdown will be this:
Ground Beef: 50 lbs (50 pkg) (could be 90% or 85% depending on availability) if you want one or the other, let us know.
Beef Roast Chuck: 5 lbs
Beef Roast Arm: 10 lbs
Beef Roast Sirloin Tip: 10 lbs
Let us know if you want big or small roasts in the special instructions section during checkout.
Beef Stew Meat: 8 lbs (8 pkg)
TBone Steak: 2 lbs (1 pkg)
Porterhouse Steak: 2 lbs (1 pkg)
Sirloin Steak: 4 lbs (2 pkg)
Ribeye Steak: 2.5 lbs (2 pkg)
NY Strip Steak: 2 lbs (2 pkg)
Chuck Steak: 3 lbs (2 pkg)
Cube Steak: 3 lbs (3 pkg)
Beef Short Ribs: 3.5 lbs (1 pkg)
Beef Brisket: 3 lbs (1 pkg)
A quarter of beef also contains about 10 lbs of extras which will include things like marrow bones, joint bones for broth, Some liver, maybe a tongue.
We will change the amount of ground beef to make the total of the quarter come out to 107 lbs, not including the 10 lbs of extras.
You can use the special instructions space while checking out to say what you want in terms of extra items.
You can also make some changes in the makeup of your quarter if you like. Just email us and ask about changes you might want to make. We can do some things, not others. You won't be able to get a quarter that is made up of only steak for instance... You WILL be able to get more ground beef, less roast, two packages of brisket instead of one each of short ribs and brisket, etc. In short, there is some wiggle room that can be worked out with a conversation.
Beef Quarters are one of the more popular items for families who want to stock up for an extended period of time.
