Sides & Quarters

We’ll be dropping cattle off for your side and quarter orders at the butcher in early 2020. Orders will be ready for you to pickup in late winter or early spring. We’ll keep you posted as we update our schedule.

You’ll pay Snow Creek Ranch for the beef and the butcher for the processing.


Here’s how it works.

  1. Place your order
    Give us a call with your order or questions regarding sides and quarters at 844-34-ANGUS (844-342-6487) extension 503. 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 844-34-ANGUS (844-342-6487) X503.


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.

This chart 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


A quarter of beef will weigh anywhere from about 100LBS to around 150LBS, with the typical quarter weighing in at around 125LBS.

If you got exactly that much beef, and if you did typical standard processing, this COST ESTIMATES table shows about what you’d pay for a quarter, side or whole beef (Cost Estimates as of 4/1/2019).


Butcher Fees Not Included

Butcher fees are approximately $150 – $175 for a quarter and approximately $300 – $350 for a half. Actual butcher fees vary depending on cutting instructions and weight. Butcher fees are extra and are paid directly to the butcher.

Pricing subject to change.
