Commercial supply of meat is based upon weight per rack, you can order cases that are graded based upon the size of the rack. If it matters that much, yes, a butcher can break up cases, based upon ordering a more expensive, graded, non-cryovac product. There are a few butchers out there that already do this for teams that compete.
