Qty:   

Buying a side of Criollo beef gets you ALL the delicious steaks, roasts and other cuts you love--at a price you'll love just as much!   And remember--there are no unknowns with our Criollo beef:  we DNA test all of our Criollos, when they are calves, to measure their meat's Tenderness and Marbling.  These scores are on a scale of 1 to 10.  Tenderness scores of 4-6 predict a "pleasant dining experience," and scores of 7 and higher--the coveted "Elite" status--predict fork-tender yumminess.  Marbling scores of 4-6 predict a grade of "Choice", with scores of 7 and higher predicting a grade of "Prime."  Only Criollos with Tenderness scores of 7 or higher,  and Marbling scores of 4 or higher, are used in our meat program.   Can you imagine, your freezer containing 4-5 cubic feet of dry-aged, flavorful, fork-tender beef?

Your Criollo Side will be custom-cut to YOUR individual specifications and preferences (don’t worry!  We’ll provide you a Cut Instruction Sheet and walk you through it!)  We pay the processor’s fees, a $2.32/lb Dressed Weight value.

Our Criollo Sides are priced at $6.55/lb Dressed Weight.  "Dressed weight" is the weight of the side of beef after harvest: our USDA-certified processor has a certified scale, conducts the weighing immediately after harvest, records the weights, and provides a cut sheet detailing the exact Dressed Weight of EVERY side of Criollo beef they process. 

Our Criollo Sides average 250 to 275 lbs. Dressed Weight, although each individual Side will vary slightly in weight.

Depending on how you choose for your Side of Criollo beef to be processed, the expected yield of vacuum-packed retail cuts of Criollo beef will vary from 60% to 70% of the Dressed Weight, plus select soup bones.  About half of the retail cuts will be steaks/roasts/etc., and about half will be ground product. 

A deposit of $400 reserves your Side; as mentioned above, you will be provided with an ACBA Cut Instructions Sheet to fill out, so that your side of delicious Criollo beef can be custom-cut to your exact specifications.  Our 2024 harvest season starts June 2024, and concludes in late August 2024.  Get your deposit in early, as our Sides and Wholes sell out early. 

The exact cost of your Side of Criollo beef will be determined by the Dressed Weight; once that is known, the deposit will be subtracted from your final invoice, and the balance will be due upon shipping, or pick-up at the Jandal Ranch.  You will also be provided a copy of the Processor’s Cut Sheet, which shows the Harvest Weight and details the cut yield.

The beef from your Criollo Side will be packaged as with all our Criollo beef:  all retail cuts are vacuum-packed in heavy mil plastic bags, with custom-printed labels clearly identifying the cut.  All ground beef is vacuum-packed in 1 lb chubs in heavy mil plastic.  All hamburger patties are vacuum-packed, with dividers, in heavy mil plastic bags.  Select soup bones are packed in 3-5 lb bags.

Your Side of Criollo beef will dry-age 1-2 weeks prior to processing; the individual cuts will be flash-frozen as soon as they are cut and vacuum-wrapped.  Criollo Sides are available, for pickup from the Jandal Ranch or shipping, about 3 weeks after Harvest Day.  Due to uncertainty of prompt delivery in the UPS & Fedex systems, we will not ship Sides or Wholes to areas requiring more than 2 days in the shipping system.

Criollo sides do not include the organ meats, but do include select soup bones.

Prices subject to change without notice.

For example, if your Side of Criollo beef has a hanging weight of 250 lbs, you can expect to receive about 70-88 lbs of steaks, roasts, ribs, etc., and about 70-88 lbs of ground product.  In addition, each Side of Criollo beef will yield around 2-4 bags of select soup bones.

Shipping Information

Our next shipping date will be Monday, June 3, 2024.

Your Criollo Beef order is delivered to your door in perfect condition. We use plenty of dry ice and a reusable, insulated cooler - a packaging combination that will insure your products arrive frozen and in excellent condition. We ship via FEDEX on Mondays. Our shipping charges for 1 and 2 day deliveries (tan and light tan areas on the map) are $36.00 for each 25 pounds of beef (i.e. 1 to 25 lbs will be $36.00 and 26 to 50 lbs will be $72)

In delivery areas requiring 3 or 4 days in the FEDEX system (green and brown areas on the map) : to insure your Criollo Beef order arrives in perfect condition, we must add additional dry ice, and usually a larger shipping container to hold the extra dry ice.  Due to the additional dry ice and larger container needed, shipments requiring 3 or 4 days in the FEDEX system will require an additional $18.00 in shipping fees. If you live in the 3 or 4 day FEDEX delivery area (based on delivery zip code), your shipping charges will be increased by $18.00 (from $36.00 to $54.00  for 0 to 25.0 lbs, and from $72.00 to $90.00 for 25.1 to 50.0 lbs., etc.). You will see this additional $18.00 (if applicable) added for the final order verification.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT SHIP TO AREAS REQUIRING 5 DAYS DELIVERY, (PUERTO RICO and 2 SMALL AREAS IN NEVADA - ORANGE ON THE MAP), NOR TO HAWAII OR ALASKA. DISTANCE CHARGES AND 5 DAY DELIVERY MEANS 7 DAYS IN THE SHIPPING SYSTEM, AND WE JUST CAN'T KEEP YOUR ORDER IN PERFECT CONDITION FOR THAT LONG! THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
