Just as you would expect, you get all the cuts from a full side. This is ideal if you have special butchering preferences. This is also the most economical way to get a great selection of exceptional beef! The weight depends on the animal and to some extent on the aging and butchering instructions. Weight of ready to cook beef per side can vary between 175 to 250 lbs. The $ per lb is fixed but the final packaged weight is unique to the order. Sharing this between families is an ideal way to go. The price per lb is based on the actual weight received, NOT hanging weight and unless specified otherwise is vackpacked, weighed and labelled.
