How much do I take home?
You take home the finished cuts or “yield.” The percentage of the hanging weight that remains is called the “yield” and is generally between 50% to 60% of hanging weight
This percentage varies based on a number of factors including:
Bone-in vs. boneless - This will dramatically affect yield. The more boneless cuts that are made, the lower the yield
The amount of fat remaining on the meat cuts-The yield will vary based on how much surface fat the cutter leaves on the cuts. Prime meat is much softer due to the grain (fat). The Prime steer is much fattier on the outer and inner level than the choice.
What sort of cuts will I get? If you buy a whole or half of beef, you make the decision how the beef is cut and packaged according to your needs. We are a chef owned company and will be glad to explain and walk you through the way.
Purchasing a Quarter Beef (half of a half) When you purchase bulk, the cuts are standardized as listed above. We like to give our customers who buy bulk a good selection of cuts from all the primal sections of the steer. Standardizing the cuts ensures that both customers sharing the side get a true split of the variety of cuts. Please let us know if you are sharing.
