If you have a chest freezer, and tend to enjoy a juicy & delicious beef meal once or twice a week, then your most economical option is to order a side or half-side of Whispering Meadows beef — naturally!
We’re a family of five, with three teenage children, and we eat a beef meal about three times a week. A side of beef lasts us around a year. On average, a side is around 340lbs of beef, and a half-side is about 170lbs, dressed weight.
“Awesome! You already know how much we love your beef!”

Your side will come in individually wrapped cuts, frozen in boxes. Ordering a side or half-side allows you the opportunity to specify exactly how you want it to be cut and wrapped— T–bones or striploin steaks, fast-fry cutlets or roasts.
We price our sides of beef at $5.25 per pound, dressed weight. That’s an amazing price for natural beef!
A note about dressed weight
Like all beef producers, we sell our beef based on dressed weight. That means the sides are weighed when they are first hung to dry-age.
Over the course of the aging process, the beef loses some of its weight through moisture loss. And then there’s some removal of bones and fat. So the overall cut weight of your beef will be around 60% to 65% of the dressed weight that you order.
That’s how the beef industry works, and the pricing is set with the expected weight reduction in mind.
Your cut beef will work out to a price of around $7.60 per pound — which is far less than you would pay for much lower quality beef in the supermarket!
