Purchasing Local Farm Raised Meat

Purchasing Local Farm Raised Meat

Life in the Lafayette, IN area means access to all sorts of local farms. We are talking fresh produce, farm fresh beef or pork, eggs, etc. There are many family owned and operated farms who sell their farm raised cattle, pigs, and lamb at carcass weight for you to purchase and store in your freezer. But what does that mean? We are here to help you clearly discover some of the small details of purchasing a quarter, half, or whole beef, pork, or lamb and to point you in a direction to find them locally!   Live Weight vs. Carcass Weight We are going to use beef as the dominate example, but please know that all these terms can be applied to pigs or lamb as well.  All right, here is where things get confusing. Cows are big animals. According to Beef Magazine, the average cow weight is 1390 lbs across all breeds. This number is the live weight. After a cow is slaughtered, some bones and other unusable organs are removed, we now have the carcass weight. The carcass weight is about 60-64% of the cow’s live weight. This includes both lean and fatty tissue, and is what most farms will give you a price point at. See below for a break down of more pricing on that.   The Butcher Now that you’ve paid the farmer for your cattle, the farmer takes your beef to the butcher for processing. You’ll pay the butcher separately for the processing of the animal. Lafayette, IN‘s Buetler’s Meat is a family favorite in the meat processing business. This Old Farm is...
