Our beef is priced per pound by the "hanging weight"- the weight after the initial slaughter before processing begins. We typically harvest at 1,100 lbs. with an approximate hanging weight of 700 lbs. Current rates for our grass-finished cattle range from $7.00 - $7.75 per pound (hanging weight-butcher fee cut & wrap included in price). Be sure to reserve yours before they are sold out for the year.

Eighth, Quarter, Half, and Whole Beef Freezer Space Guide
When you choose Flooded Riveranch for your beef needs, it's important to ensure that you have adequate freezer space to accommodate the quantity of meat you'll receive. Here's a helpful guide to estimate the freezer space required for a typical beef order size. If you're a visual learner, keep scrolling for the infographic below.
One-Eighth of a Beef: Top Freezer above the Refrigerator
In the upper compartment of a fridge/freezer combo, which typically has a capacity of 3-4 cubic feet, you can generally store only about one-eighth of a beef.
Quarter Beef: 6-7 Cubic Foot Freezer
For a quarter beef order, you might be able to get away with a freezer of 5 cubic feet, but that's only if you don't have additional items in your freezer. To allow for some extra space for potential additional items, we suggest opting for this size when ordering a quarter of beef.
Half Beef: 9-12 Cubic Foot Freezer
A half-beef order necessitates a minimum freezer size of 8 cubic feet. However, if you plan to store other items, including different types of meats, a freezer with a capacity ranging from 9 to 12 cubic feet would provide ample space.
Whole Beef: 17-21 Cubic Foot Freezers
A 16 Cubic foot freezer is the minimum size we recommend for a whole beef order, but it might be tight. Opting for 17 - 21 cubic foot freezers to accommodate a whole cow while ensuring an organized storage system using bins or shelves.
Having the appropriate freezer space ensures that your Flooded Riveranch beef stays fresh and properly stored, ready to be enjoyed whenever you desire. For any further assistance or to place your beef order, please contact us using the information below.
