Not only do we want you to order the way you want, we want you to know and understand what you are paying for.
Ordering grass-fed and finished beef can be complicated and confusing sometimes. Some charge by the live weight, others by hanging weight, and others by finishing weight. On top of this, some include the processing fees while others do not. Some require you to pick up your meat, others deliver for free or for an additional fee.
Not with Better Meats though!
The prices that Better Meats list below include processing and a delivery to St. Louis (Kirkwood), at no additional charge!!
We like keeping thing easy and believe that you should have no questions about what you are paying for.
$4.56 per lb hanging weight.
To follow FDA laws, we sell our meat by hanging weight.
Compare prices to see how we compare.
Although we personally charge by hanging weight so that we follow FDA rules, below we show what the price would be if we charged by finished weight or live weight so you can compare prices with other producers and how they charge for their meat. The information below is based off of information that we have collected from previous beeves that we have sold.
Finished weight $6.62
How much meat can I expect to take home?
Hanging weight is calculated once the processor has removed the uneditable parts (the head, hooves, interior organs etc.), the carcass is then weighed. This is called the hanging weight.This weight is not the amount of meat you are going to take home. After all the processing, the meat that you take home can be up to 40% less than the carcass weight.
When I buy...
Realize though that all quoted costs are examples which may have more or less beef than what you receive. In addition, the totals do not include tax which will be added to your total costs.
