*Carcass or hanging weight is the weight of the animal after it is killed and the head, hide, innards, and hooves are removed.

°Weight of finished meat varies, depending on the size of the animal and processing options.

†You will pay Swiss’s processing fee which is about $0.50 – 0.75/lb carcass weight for processing and packaging plus a $0.00 butcher and disposal fee (these are separate from the cost to us).

‡Approximate Whole Beef cost breakdown: carcass weight 400-500# X $4.90/lb. (cost to Missouri Grass Fed Beef) + 400-500# X $0.50-0.75/lb. Processing (cost to Swiss) + $0.00 butcher fee = $2160-$2825 (Take half of these amounts for an approximate Half Beef cost breakdown)
