SIDES AND WHOLES AVAILABLE!!

You can order your own side/whole cut to your custom specifications!

We offer whole animals and individual sides, custom-cut to your individual specifications and priced by the pound based on dressed weight, PROCESSING FEES INCLUDED.  What's so important about the processing fees being included?  It's a BIG deal--the expenses associated with creating vaccum-packed cuts of beef include:  the harvest fee, meat hanging/aging/cutting fee, by-product disposal fee, and package fee.  Typically, processing fees average $2.32 per pound of dressed weight for dry-aged, vacuum-packed beef such as we are proud to provide our customers.  By including all processing fees in our prices, our customers have only 1 variable to consider:  the dressed weight of the side or whole they are considering purchasing.

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, a freezer-full of dry-aged, flavorful, fork-tender beef?

Average hanging weight is 500 to 550 lbs, but each animal varies slightly.  The yield from our animals from dressed weight to finished product varies depending on what retail cuts of beef are chosen, but is typically around 60%-70%.   Factors that affect weight of final retail product include bone-in vs boneless (ribeye, top sirloin, chuck roast, round steak) and if a particular cut is wrapped or turned into ground product.  Typically, about half the yield is ground product (92%-94% lean), and about half is individually-wrapped retail cuts.

Wholes are priced at $6.25/lb dressed weight, and include the organ meats & bagged select soup bones, with $800.00 deposit reserving the beef. 

Sides are priced at $6.55/lb dressed weight, and include bagged select soup bones, with $400.00 deposit reserving the beef.  Organ meats are not included with sides. 

All retail cuts are vacuum-packed in heavy mil plastic bags and 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.

Expected yield of retail cuts of beef from Wholes, based on average dressed weight of 500 to 550 lbs, is 350 to 385 lbs of individual cuts; expected yield of retail cuts of beef from sides, based on average dressed weight of 250 to 275 lbs, is 175 to 193 lbs of individual cuts. 

Please contact us via email or telephone for more details. The 2024 harvest season starts June 3, 2024.  Our sides and wholes typically dry-age for 1-2 weeks before being cut and vacuum-packed, so are typically available for pick-up at the Jandal Ranch or shipping 3 weeks after harvest day.

As an example, if you buy a side of beef, and that side of beef had a dressed weight of 250 lbs, your side of beef would cost 250 x $6.55 =  $1,637.50,   You could expect, depending on how you had your side processed, 150 to 175 lbs of actual individual cuts of beef, plus select soup bones.

Another example, if you buy a whole beef (2 sides + organ meats), and that beef had a dressed weight of 550 lbs, your whole beef would cost 550 x $6.25 = $3,437.50; you could expect 330 to 385 lbs of actual individual cuts of beef, plus the organ meats (liver, tongue, heart, oxtail), plus 4-5 bags of select soup bones.

Shipping Information

Our next shipping date will be Monday, June 17, 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.
