Frequently Ask Questions
Q. How much freezer space is needed?
Approximately every 25 lbs. of meat will require 1 cubic ft. of freezer space
Q. Do you sell 1/4 beef orders
No not at this time, but you can still purchase a half beef and split it into quarters with a friend
or a family member. Get with the processor after we deliver the animal and let them know you
want it split into quarters. The processor will charge a reasonable fee for this process

Bluebonnet Meat Company in Trenton Tx., but at times we may use Hess Meat Market in Muenster Tx.
(Both are State inspected)
Q. What is live, hanging and take-home weight
Live weight: This is the weight of the animal while alive (on the hoof)
Hanging weight: Weight of animal as it hangs on the rail at processors. head, hide, organs, etc. removed.
Hanging weight is about 50-55% of live weight.
Take-home weight: Weight of the actual meat you will receive, approximately 2/3 of hanging weight.
