Sides & Quarters

We’ll be dropping cattle off for your side and quarter orders at the butcher in April. Orders will be ready for you to pickup in late May. You’ll pay Snow Creek Ranch for the beef and the butcher for the processing.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Place your order
    Call or text us with your order or questions regarding sides and quarters at (303) 229-9382. Give us your contact information and pay your deposit to Snow Creek Ranch to reserve your beef. Note that quarters are standard cut and have no choices. Custom cutting is available on sides and larger. You will give your cutting instructions directly to the butcher.
  2. Pay your balance
    When we know your actual take home beef weight (about 4 weeks after the cattle drive) we’ll figure out your balance. When your balance is paid, you can go to the butcher and pick up your order.
  3. Pay the butcher and pick up your beef
    The butcher we use is near Ft. Collins. Go there, pay the processing fees, and pick up your beef. Take blankets to wrap your beef in until you get home.

Or Call or Text ORDER to 303-229-9382 or 303-915-5892.

The Cuts

We sell our Pure Gourmet Angus in whole, half, and quarter quantities. The cuts from a quarter beef would require about 4 to 5 cubic feet of freezer space. We work with butchers that custom cut and wrap.

The chart below gives a rough idea of the types and amounts of cuts you could expect from a quarter of a beef. With our genetics you’ll usually get approximately 5% more of the premium steaks than with other beef. Actual results will vary; this is supplied as a guide.

The Cost

 
When you buy a quarter, our beef sells for $10.36 per pound of packaged meat — the meat you take home. When you buy a half (“a side”) or more, it goes for $9.27 per pound of packaged meat. Snow Creek Ranch requires a $250.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve a quarter beef.

Typical quarter beefs run about 110 pounds. If you got exactly that much beef and if you did typical standard processing, this COST ESTIMATES table shows about what you’d pay:
