I thought that sounded too good to be true. So I decided to try and tell him what I was after. He stops me and says......any part so long as the cow has it....a dollar a pound LIVE WEIGHT...I will only sell you the whole cow son. LMAO!!

Well....at least I now know where I can get a steer and for how much. He said just tell him when he's on the way to the slaughterhouse and he'd hand it over to them while he's there. Hmmmmm....let's see...that's 1100lbs...650lbs hanging weight.....that's 1.69/lb....now to figure out how much the slaughterhouse will be and I may just take him up n this. LOL!!
$1 a pound live weight is pretty cheap, the live market price here last week was $1.19 a pound. I think average cost to process depends on how you have it cut, like how many steaks instead of roasts, or how much ground up. Last one I remember seeing was about $350 for processing.

Trying not to hijack, but this thread I posted the ribs were from Rest. Depot. I messed up the ribs, but luckily I only cooked one slab of the four that were in the package.

Yeah, that price is about right based on my experience - not one of the cheaper cuts, but if you cook them until probe tender, they will be more than worth it. Short rib has gotten to be my favorite cut of beef. A few folks from where I work saw what I eating yesterday and went and got some for themselves and they all lost their minds. We may have 2 carloads going over there next week.
