Are you thinking of buying a cow? Have you decided how much – a sixteenth, quarter, half, or whole cow?
We’ve been selling beef directly off of our farm for decades. Without a doubt one of the first questions people ask before buying a cow is “how much beef will I actually get?” That question is usually followed by, “If I buy a cow, what part am I getting? The front half or back half?”
In other posts, we’ve provided a step-by-step guide on how to buy a cow from a farmer, and what questions to ask before you purchase.
Today, we’re going to use video and photos to SHOW you how much beef you get when you buy a cow.
To put it in perspective, we’ve made our home refrigerator the star of the video and photos.
We’ve taken these pictures twice, years apart. The first time we only took photos and we had a standard 18.1 cu ft refrigerator with a freezer on top. The second time we did this, we made a video and we had a newer refrigerator – a 22.1 cu ft refrigerator with french doors and freezer on the bottom.
