I used Google for my numbers
62% yield carcass weight vs live weight
Then 50% yield on carcass weight
Came out to $5.37 a pound not even counting butchering fee.

Is that right?

Probably close. I have a buddy who's selling, and he's not able to match sale price on beef.

My girlfriend has been badgering me on buying a side of beef for 2 weeks now bc of this bullshit uncertainty of the economy. Her friend has been paying $1800 for a side fully processed. No effing way. I don't spent that much a year on all my groceries. She buys one every 6 months.

I told her I will stay with venison and buy ribeyes on sale

My buddy bought a walk in cooler. We put it up. Mainly for Deer. But last 2 years we killed a Beef and 2 for 2 other people. Its A LOT OF WORK. We talking not killing for other people. Only just for us 2 now. To much work and time involved with a Beef.
