Carcass portions are sold based on their "hanging weight", which is the weight of the carcass after the hide, head, feet and intestines are removed. It generally includes the weight of the edible offal such as kidneys, liver, and heart if they are saved.
Our current price for halves is $3.50 per pound of hanging weight.
Our half-carcasses are generally around 400lbs. Some will be heavier, some will be lighter...If you have a preference, please let us know and we can generally accomodate you. A 400lb carcass half would cost around $1400 for the carcass half. We cover the USDA-inspected slaughter fee with Mohawk Meats in Springfield, OR.
The cut and wrap charge is charged by and paid directly by you to the USDA-inspected Mohawk Meats and generally runs anywhere from $0.60-$0.80 a pound. They will counsel you with regards to the cutting and packaging that will provide you with the end product that best fits your lifestyle. Paper-wrapped will provide you with the lowest cost. So likely $240-$400 for cut and wrap on a half.
So all-in, for a half you're looking at about $1800. A quarter will generally have a small additional cutting fee associated with it. We sell quarters in pairs. If you want a quarter, let us know and we will attempt to match you up with another customer that wants a quarter. We sell "mixed" quarters, which means that each customer gets cuts from the front and rear quarters, so you get a sampling of most of the cuts you'd get in a half.
