Where in texas? It says d-ville. If you are close to Lewisville, then we are close by now as well. The place I get a lot of my meats from is Old Town Market on Mill st. A family business that sources all of there beef locally. A little pricey but extremely high quality. They do run some very good package deals at times as well. I grew up in the meat processing and grocery buisness and know how to break cattle off the rail from when I was a kid. Made my own sausage in one of grocery stores. This place is awesome in my opinion.


I’m actually south of Houston; the D-ville is a tribute to the board DD had back in the day. 
Their are a few farms by my work and they said the going rate is $1.00 a pound before butchering then another $700 for the butchering and packaging which would put it around $2k. I can afford it I just don’t want to drop 2k on a shit ton of hamburger and roasts when really all I eat is ribeye and filet mignog. 

That's why I said you can tell them what you eat and they will cater to you when they chop it up.

If he only wants ribeyes ans filets there is no reason to mess with whole cattle. He’d be much better off buying them whole and having them sliced like he wants.

See if you have any family or friends who will go in on a whole cow/pig with you. You can save even more money that way and still get what you want

If I offered it to my CrossFit neighbors I’m sure they would want to buy in to get some grass fed beef but I’d rather not open that door.

After further research i don’t think it would be a wise purchase. Buying meat at the butcher counter seems to fit our needs better.

But I would still look around for a local, non-super mkt. butcher shop.  We buy exactly what we want from the local guy including getting him to sell us bacon that we really like by the case.

I picked up a whole cow this year from a local grass fed farm. I got the custom cuts I wanted; Pichana and Trip tip and opted to leave the ribeyes whole as 2 roasts. As expected we have a shit ton of hamburger but overall it was a good deal.


I have one on order for next year as well, suppose it will be our thing for awhile.

Freezer space is key. We're going on on half a pig with a friend's family.

We raised our own cattle for years, hardly ever bought any beef from the store. Beef is 1000% better this way..

Yeah that cow took every bit of our spare freezer and most of our fridge’s freezer.

I would try and do the same for pigs.

It may just be mental but I feel like this beef is substantially more filling than the store bought. I gave some of the ground beef to a few neighbors and they for lack of a better term thought it tasted Gamey but we haven’t picked up the same flavor. We did however eat some ribeyes from the freezer that we had left from Kroger and they tasted like shit in comparison.

Whether or not its worth it depends on how many people youre feeding. When I had 4 kids in the house, we'd go through a beef per year. Now that Im older, my wife and I dont eat as much but the 18 yr old twins eat the world. Now, we go through a hog a year and skip the beef. I keep pork shoulder, some chops and put the rest into ground pork which Ive come to prefer over ground beef. Its easier to digest and I can end up with around 300 lbs of meat for around $400 post slaughter. For the money, the hog is better for us and its easier to digest. We make tacos, burgers, meatloaf, enchiladas, soups etc with the ground pork. An entire beef ends up pushing a couple thousand post slaughter and in the current market prolly ends up averaging a cost of $3.50 per lb which is a great price but its gonna be a LOT of meat and unless you have a lot of people in the house, its gonna take you 3 years to eat it. After 2 years, the meat flavor starts losing quality. I can pretty much answer any specific question anyone has about this as it used to be my primary source of income for years.
