We will seamlessly arrange butchering at Plymouth Meats, the same location where our animals are humanely slaughtered under USDA supervision. Whether you are an experienced chef or can’t tell the round from the ribs, we are more than happy to walk you through the cut sheet and customize your order from the butcher. As a guideline, carrying out a standard cut sheet results in roughly 30% steaks, 30% roasts/slow-cook cuts, and 40% ground.
Bulk beef and pork prices are based on hanging weight, which is the skinned carcass minus the head and offal. The meat yield will depend on how you have the cow or pig butchered; as in, the more bone-in cuts, the higher the end weight, and vice versa. Hanging weight is roughly half live weight, and usually meat yield is approximately 70% of hanging weight. For example, a 1200 lb. live weight cow becomes 600 lbs. hanging weight and yields about 420 lbs. butchered meat.
