The butcher will determine the final hanging weight of the steer we choose from our 400 acres ranch of Angus cattle. Your total cost per 1/4, 1/2, or whole steer will depend on the hanging weight of the animal.
* A deposit is required first. $1000 for a whole steer, $600 for a 1/2 side, $600 for a 1/4 side
* We deliver to our local butcher. On a whole or 1/2 We will go over the cuts you may want. A cut sheet will be provided for you.
* A Cut sheet will be your guide to thickness of steaks, number per package, pounds per package and size of roasts. We will leave a cut sheet with butcher, your signed signature confirming your final approval.
*At this point when steer is ready we will need final payment (this is based on final hanging weight of you side) which includes, Inspection, processing fee, cut and vacuum sealed, personally labeled and ready for your freezer. Quarter sides can be picked up at our home in drip, or local markets i attend. On whole or 1/2 sides. You will need to load up your ice chest and pick up your meat at the Smithville Butcher locker. We can deliver but there's a $100 fee.
Example: A whole steer can weigh between 450 and 660 pounds. Our last steer weighed in at 600 pounds. For this 600 pound animal, a 1/4 order would be at 150 pounds and would cost $9 per pound. The total cost would be $1350,00.
The larger your order, the more of a discount you will receive:
Once an animal is selected and deposit received, we take it to our local butcher. We will use your cut sheet for the butcher, how you want it packaged, cut, thickness, number of pds per package, and size of roasts and briskets on 1/2, or whole sides only..
We butcher our grass fed/finished natural Angus cattle throughout the year as the animals mature. They are raised on grass, no pesticide or fertilized hay with no antibiotics, hormones, or steroids. The beef is very lean and natural. There is not that layer of unhealthy fat that you get when animals are fed grain in a stock yard. It can take 12-14 months for an animal to reach the right age and weight for butchering plus have some natural fat.
Customers must drop off large clean ice chests at our house the week prior so that we can safely store and travel with your order. Upon request, we can provide our ice chests for smaller 1/4 side orders.
Customers will pick up their order from our house (call or text 512-784-3066 for address). Final payment is expected at time of pickup. If you order 1/2 to whole side, you will need to pick up beef yourself when notified its ready. Final payment due via cc/zelle token is firstname.lastname@example.org - then address and butcher will be notified. Delivery can be done plus an extra traveling fee $100.00. There are no refunds once the animal has been processed.
We retrieve smaller orders from the butcher, sort and place into appropriate coolers immediately. We can't hold orders due to freezer space.
