I'd like to find some beef like that. Everytime we've tried to buy a prime Angus it turns out to be an old Holstein that died of old age out behind a dairy. If the farmer does ever get us a good cow the butcher swaps it out for some old garbage in the back. I need to find a farmer and butcher I can trust so until then it'll be costco. I've had the best consistently from Costco but I'm sure there's better beef out there.

Richard has one beef left. PM me and I’ll give you his number. Mine is getting killed in the morning.

You whine about your industry all of the time Jim. Do you see your kiddos carrying it on in 2045?

If they want to sure.

There will always be a need, and the land should still be here.


Interesting that you would classify it as whining.

That's awesome, las.

When the all hat and no cows are done, think about 2025 when beef production is down 50%

I bought Greenbrier County Chuck Roast beef at $4.59 last Saturday and I bought Ground Beef (73%) at $1.98 (my favorite). Bought some Strip Steaks today at $6.98. I want beef that’s has some grain feed, not all grass feed.

I have too much meat in the freezer. I called the DOW to see if they had a needy list, they said "no, everyone wants elk" 🙄

Ours are finished on 100 percent free choice ground barley.

We raise the barley in fact.

We grind the barley and put it in a self feeder.


They can eat as much as they want.


We keep mineral and salt in front of them. Plus some straw and grass hay.

It went up this year, and this may not be entirely accurate, but pretty close. About a buck 40 on the hoof, and cut, wrap and freeze is about $500.

Honestly, I don’t pay much attention since the guy works for me full time and I’ve been trying to convince his dad that selling retail should be higher than sale barn prices. He thinks that’s “unfair” and “ charging too much”. Honest as the day is long, but not the best business man. And I love the beef, so I just count out however $100 bills he writes the bill for. The processing bill is a bit higher than for most because I have them minimize the amount of ground beef by cutting a bunch of stew meat.
