Looking for more than a quarter of a cow?
So, what if you buy half a cow? What does that look like in your freezer?
With a half a cow, you’ll get approximately 200 pounds of beef. It includes 100 pounds of ground beef, and the rest in cuts like steaks, roasts, ribs, brisket, and tenderloin.
And what if you buy three quarters or a whole cow? If you do, you’ll have a LOT of beef and you’ll need a freezer. With a whole cow you would get approximately 440 pounds of beef. It will be approximately 200 pounds of ground beef, and the other 220 pounds are in cuts like steaks, roasts, ribs, brisket, tenderloin, etc. On average, we’ve found that a whole is great for families of three or more that eat beef with four or more meals a week. With a whole, you will save the most money and have beef for a year.
How much freezer space will I need for my beef?
Plan on approximately one cubic foot of freezer space for every 15-20 pounds of meat. The interior of a milk crate is slightly more than a cubic foot. For a 1/4 beef, you will need a 3.5 cu ft. freezer.
