Hi! I'm looking to buy a whole cow from Stemple Creek Ranch (http://www.stemplecreek.com). I've been on a ranch tour there, met the cows who are all 100% grass fed and tasty. I'd prefer to get a whole cow since it's cheaper and I'm looking for people who would like to split it with me. The price would be ~ $568 per 1/4 cow (~100-110 pounds), which works out to $5-$5.50 a pound. Here's the breakdown:
20-25% steaks 20-25% roasts 40-45% ground beef 10-15% short ribs, stew meat, etc.
