Where Can I Buy A Cow For Meat

With your live animal purchase, we arrange the slaughter or harvest of the animal on our Trabuco Ranch, transportation to a local family butcher for processing, and communicate with the butcher on your behalf. Your meat will be hung and dry-aged for 25-28 days to allow natural enzymes to tenderize and enhance the flavor. Our local butcher will then call you and provide you with options for meat cuts (quantity of steaks, hamburger etc.). Your meat will then be custom cut and wrapped to your order. Once your meat is chilled, it is ready for you to pick up in Chino, CA. We can't ship whole/half cow orders as they are live animal purchases and not USDA processed.
The purchase dates we provide are an estimate and the actual time you will receive your meat may vary by a month or more. We process our animals when they have gained adequate weight and are fat enough. Weight gain and fat gain can be affected by climate and the amount of green grass available. During longer hot seasons, the cattle do not eat as much and gain less. This can extend the amount of time to get your whole/half cow ready. We never supplement with any grains to speed up this process and instead rely only on nature. Should you have any questions about the date you will receive your whole/half cow, we are always available to provide you with updates.
A deposit of $750 for a half cow and $1500 for a whole animal. The balance of the live animal purchase is due once the animal is slaughtered. You'll pay the butcher separately for the aging, cutting, wrapping, and freezing when you pick up your meat. Please note: this is a live animal purchase, non USDA processed, and can't be shipped.
We ordered a half-cow and were THRILLED with our purchase! Not only do we love supporting local ranchers, but the meat is high-quality, organic, grass-fed, and delicious! My (keto) heart is very happy and our freezer is full! We will definitely be back.
From ordering, to getting my questions answered by the rancher Mr. Fitzpatrick to picking up our meat, we couldn't be more happier. We split a half cow 3 ways and we all got so much meat, delicious meat. Thank you so much, we will definitely order again.
With a quarter you get about 50 pounds of ground beef, and the remaining 60 lbs of meat is in steaks, brisket, roasts, stew meat, ribs, liver, soup bones, etc. Please keep in mind that everything is based on the individual cow and how the beef is cut, but typical, the remaining 60 lbs works out to be approximately 6-7 strip steaks, 6-7 ribeye steaks, 5-6 filets, 5-6 sirloin steaks, 2 short ribs, 4-5 roasts, 1-2 package of stew meat, 1-2 packages of liver, 1 brisket, and several packages of soup bones.

I was a meatcutter from 1969 to 1984 and I am planning to get back into it. I know the beef comes broken down and in boxes so swinging beef is probably a thing of the past. Actually how different is it Thanks, Mike Huys
All meat for public consumption in the U.S. must be inspected by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). In some states, like Missouri, you can also have an inspector from a state inspection agency inspect meat, but state-inspected cannot cross state lines for sale.
Beef aging refers to the length of time the carcass has been stored after slaughter. Aging the beef helps break down connective tissues and tenderize the meat. The results are delic
