quarter cow... [Nov. 1st, 2010|01:57 pm]
Verminius Rex
I'm sending off our deposit for a quarter cow from M&J Ranch. They were out for the season, but turns out they were processing one more for their own family and only needed half. So in about 9 days we get to stuff a quarter cow into our freezer downstairs. Not sure what the total cost will be until after hanging and processing, but it'll be about $3.60/lb between the ranch and the processor. And a one time $7.50 kill fee. Which means it costs $7.50 to hire a hitman to take out a bovine, the rest of the cost is getting rid of the body.

No it's to prepare the body for disposal.

Ro paid the rest of the cost for our 1/2 cow today. It turns out the processor is a bit busy, and wanted to know if it would be ok if ours aged for 21 days. Since this is what we wanted originally, we said sure, happy to help out.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Let me know what you think of it. We've been halfheartedly looking for a beef source, and if you like M&J would follow up on that.

I've had it from other customers that they are good, but I'll be able to give you firsthand reviews sometime after the 11th. So far their communication has been very good, if you were really thinking about it I'd email them and get on their spring 2011 list now to be sure you have the opportunity to get some beef.

After hearing your reviews, I'll be sure to do just as you recommend.
