Ground beef from a 15 year old cow – still healthy with good body condition. Older cows have meat that is tougher but more flavorful, which makes excellent ground beef! We normally retire cows between 13 and 20 years old.
This cow has produced 12 calves for us through the years and has stayed very healthy on our natural pastures. She has gotten a bad habit of squeezing through fences to reach taller grass, and this is her year for butcher.
This 1/8 beef share will contain 50 1# packages of ground beef made from the whole cow.
Priced at $6/lb of packaged ground beef.
