 Today I got the invoice for my quarter cow (as opposed to a quarter horse, which people frown upon when you buy them cut into steaks). Next week I'll call and discuss how I want it cut up, and it needs to hang for 14 days to cure before being divided. This also gives us a chance to pull one of the pork roasts out of the freezer to make more space, although I'm thinking a quarter cow will be a good hunk of meat but not take up every inch of space in our basement freezer (if it does I'll need a Tetris expert to help me make it fit). 

The total weight of my quarter is about 140 lbs.

As odd as this sounds, when you get the meat can you take a picture of it so I can get an idea of how much meat that actually is? I have no concept...

I'll let you know about how many square feet it takes up in the downstairs freezer, that should be easy enough to measure since it's a top loader.

Two shelves in our upright, and not packed too tightly.
