A ¼ beef is usually 90 pounds +/- 10%, a ½ beef ~180 pounds of meat and a whole beef is about 360 pounds. The price for 1/4 beef is $7.69 per pound. If your beef weighs exactly 90 pounds it would be $692.10. By buying in volume you save at least $80 compared to buying the cuts individually. This price includes cutting, wrapping and delivery to the Indianapolis or Terre Haute area. A $100 deposit will reserve your beef. The following information is a breakdown on the different cuts and wrapping options for a ¼ beef (this amount of meat will fill ~4 brown grocery sacks).
