How Will I Receive My Whole/Half/Quarter Beef?

  • For whole/half/quarter beef orders, Legends Cattle will schedule a processing time with one of our vendors, or a professionally certified processor of your choosing (Any processor further than 50 miles from Emory, TX will be subject to an additional surcharge).
  • You will then work directly with the processor to select your desired cuts.
  • The processor will notify you when your order is ready.  Expect lead times of 2-3 months.
  • Final payment is due before picking up your order.
  • You will be responsible for picking up your beef from the processor.

What Is The Estimated Total Cost For Whole/Half/Quarter Beef?

The following table serves as a reference to help give you an estimate of the total cost of ordering a whole/half/quarter side of beef, including processing fees.  Each order will be unique depending on the live weight, hanging weight and cuts of beef chosen.

What Are The Typical Cuts of Beef In A Half Order?

You will provide instructions to the processor about the types of cuts you prefer, thickness of steaks, etc.  The example below is a common cut sheet, based on 600 pound (whole) hanging weight.  Note, if you prefer more ground beef and less roasts this is an easy substitution.

If you have questions about cuts of beef, how best to prepare it, or are interested in new recipes, we encourage you to visit the Texas Beef Council website Beef Loving Texans, for more information.
