On average we like to take our cattle to the butcher around 1200lbs.  As we said this is an approximate weight but that’s what we aim for.  From a 1200lbs steer, typically the hanging weight is approximately 60% of the live weight or 720lbs.  During the final butchering process, typically the weight of meat cut, packaged, vacuum sealed and ready for you is approximately 43% of the live weight or 500lbs.  Your various cuts of meat will consist of steaks, roasts and hamburger.  From the overall cut of beef approximately 20% will be steaks, 20% roasts and 60% hamburger.
