For example, if the current market value is $2.25/lbs. for a 1200 lbs. whole beef, you would pay $2700. And approximate processing charge is $500. You will have approximately 600 lbs of beef in your freezer with an average price of $5.33/lbs. for your steaks, roasts, and ground. Therefore, when you buy a whole or half beef, you are paying essentially the price of prime ground beef for all the cuts (steaks, roasts, and ground) you receive.
