My friend Merrell Collins raised a few head of cattle this summer and is offering half or quarters for folks looking for some homegrown, no hormone, no antibiotics beef. The Black Angus were raised on grass pasture and supplemented with corn to complete their diet.
Merrell estimates that the quarter beef will dress out at around 150 lbs. and will be sold at market price plus processing costs. The cost should be around $550/quarter. Beef will be processed this fall and you can determine how you would like your half or quarter cut.
Please call Merrell, 618 292-3586, to place your order and put down a deposit. He has a limited number available of these quality, homegrown beef so please contact him soon.
