Hilltop Ranch & Cattle

Beef Shares

Beef shares are great for families and for planning ahead. Some families like to split a 1/2 or 1/4 with other family or friends. At Hilltop we find a 1/2 beef will feed our family of 5 for almost a year.
Consider a beef share......
Beef shares include 25% steaks, 25% roasts, 50% ground beef.
When you purchase a quarter beef or a side of beef from our ranch, we do what is called a mixed quarter or mixed half. That means we equally divide all parts of the animal so that you get cuts of beef from the front & back of the cow. It may feel like an investment, but it is worth it! In the long run you save money! And remember you can always split it with a family member or friends.
1/8 beef = 50lbs
1/4 beef = 100lbs
1/2 beef = 200lbs
-For a 1/4 share you'll need about 2.5 cubic feet of freezer space.
-For a 1/2 share you'll need about 5 cubic feet of freezer space.
