How long to hang beef

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any wisdom on how long to hang a grass fed and grass finished steer? I've heard 4-6 weeks which is a very long time. Any experience?

No real wisdom here but I do remember the farm I get my milk off telling me they were going to hang the bull for 2 weeks but it ended up being 3 for some reason & the butcher had told them it was nearly too long. They hung it in the chiller too. All our beef here is grass raised so I could find out if you get desperate.

21-28 days for the best flavour IME!!!

It depends on how old the beef is before hanging. We purchased an 8-9 month old grass-fed calf and they recommended hang time be only ten days because it was young. I think an older animal would require a longer hang time I had read about 21 days for an older animal. hth
