Foxbard Beef Steers are processed in the Fall and Winter with quarters available on a reserved basis. All of our Angus beef is USDA approved. Beef is aged two weeks before cutting, then flash frozen and paper-wrapped to remain freezer safe for up to a year.
Typically a quarter from a 1000 lb steer will hang at 140 lbs and dress out at a finished weight of 95 – 105 lbs. Butchering is customized to fit individual orders based on the “Cut Sheet” linked below. Steaks may be cut 3/4″ to 1 1/4″ thick, while roasts can vary from 3 to 5 pounds in weight. Alternately, roasts* may be cut into steaks, stew meat or ground into hamburger, as preferred.
We offer our beef by the front or rear quarter and price it by hanging weight at $5.00/lb (hanging wt).
