I've found two local sources for bulk grass fed beef. One is $6/lb across all cuts which is the finished weight - the price I pay per pound once the beef has been processed, aged, frozen and delivered.
There is another source that is $4.90 per pound hanging weight which will also include the processing, aging and delivery.
But, my understanding is that if you have 100lbs of hanging weight, you'll likely end up with 70ish pounds of actual meat once processed, aged etc.. Is this correct?
This is our first time buying a cow in bulk so I'm trying to figure out which is a better way to go - by finished weight or by hanging weight?
