Choosing A Package

Copperhead offers several beef packages to meet your family’s needs. Below we’ll go over what each package contains and the pricing associated with each.

Our bulk packages allow you to purchase a whole, half, quarter or eighth of a cow.

Prices are based on the cow’s hanging weight (the weight after slaughter, dressing and cleaning). Cost estimates are based on a 1,000 lb cow; however, you may request a smaller or larger cow and we will adjust the price accordingly (again, the price is calculated by weight, so a smaller cow will cost you less and also have a smaller meat output). Note: a larger cow will have a higher fat percentage and may be better for steaks, while a smaller cow is desirable for some families needs, such as accommodating a low-fat diet or smaller storage space.
