Calves 2016 –Girls           All sold

Calves 2016–Boys-          Steers only available

If you are looking for meat in 2018, we have a few summer ’16 steers  for sale.  They were born between mid May and mid July.   A 2 year old steer may have a live weight of 800-850 pounds.  When harvested, the hanging weight is typically 55%-57% of the live weight.  (The hanging,  also called carcas, weight is the weight butchers use.)   What actually goes into your freezer will depend on how you have your animal cut and processed.  With typical cuts, the freezer will usually get about 42% of the live animal weight.

Dexter beef is right sized for a family and delicious! (Pictures at 11 months.)
