Freezer beef

Just wondering what some of you guys that sell quarters and halves are charging? I have a few head that will be ready in a couple months. Im not trying to be nosey, Im just trying to be fair. I was thinking $3 a pound hanging weight? The kill fee at the local butcher is $39 and the processing fee is 45 cents a pound for halves and 48 cents a pound for quarters. Thanks!

Re: Freezer beef

Currently $1.90 on the rail for grain fed steins.  Customer pays the processing.  I always have the customer pay the butcher and they just pay me for the beef.  We usually sell 20-30 head a year this way.
