    I'm sure you know you got a great deal. I just sold about 6 beef to various friends and coworkers, most of it 1/2, 1/4, or even 1/8 at a time. Sure can't do it that cheap though. Hope its good beef. Enjoy!

    It really stinks, we don't even have any local butchers. How is that? Its not a really a small town. There are a few guys who will process venison and stuff it you bring it to them but come on.

    Bought a 1/4 year b4 last pretty good flavor 3.09 lb cut and wrapped.
     
  10. Around here i am the local butcher. No one else cuts here, you'd drive two hours to get to the next guy. The guy i am apprenticing under pretty much gave all his buisness to me so i am a busy guy. I don't do all the prepared meat though like ham and bacon. Cut wrap grind . That costs 50 cents a pound. Sausage is extra. That is one of the reasons i have been paying so much attention to this website, tons of good info. Thanks for the help and keep getting those local guys cutting your meat or they'll all disapear.

    It was 240 lb's...170lb's after processing. It was part of the front and part of the rear of the cow so I got a lot of hamberger and some decent steaks and some nice roasts. I won't have to buy any beef for a long time. Haven't done anything with it yet, but soon, very very soon.
     
  13. Good deal cub guy...there is mass q-view in your future.

    You're right about that! Mine disappeared recently. Figures I was working for low wages when he was around, and now that I can pay a little more for better steaks he folds up shop. Hopefully someone will take his place.
