The price would have to be higher???


A lot of the grass fed that I see is heifers that did not breed or young cull cows.

I sold a young cull cow for $1.89 lb hanging + processing to a customer that wanted grass fed beef only.
I Explained exactly what she was and what to expect... both of us were very happy with the transaction.

$5.93/lb 1/4 carcass approximately $700 not the highest or the cheapest around. Of course you have to be within 75 miles of Austin. I’d rather pay more and live somewhere else.

I’d have to be pretty hungry to eat any grass fed beef. But, I’d sure sell it.

We sold three steers in late December for $3.90 per pound hanging weight, with the cost including everything (kill fee, cut and wrap fee, split fee, tallow fee). We do halves or quarters. Buyer has option of picking it up at butcher or we will pick it up and deliver to their home if it is close by if they can't pick it up. Mostly grass-fed beef, with a little alfalfa and a touch of grain.
