How many pounds of meat do I get?

Average 100 lbs of meat.

How much does it cost?

A quarter share of beef is $12 per pound (packaged weight). Depending on the final weight of the cow, you can expect on average:

Deposit: $550

Balance: $650

Total: $1,200


You save an average of $3 per pound, or $300 total.
