Vacuum seal wrap: $5.00/pound/hanging weight
White Butcher Paper: $4.75/pound/hanging weight
Fill your family's freezer with premium quality, Idaho beef from Thomas Cattle Co. This is the best value you'll get due to buying in bulk.
A $250 deposit is required to reserve 1/4 beef share. The remainder will be due in a payment plan that works for you or in one final lump sum payment due before pickup at the butcher.
With 1/4 beef, a standard set of cuts is selected for the customer. We split a half of a beef evenly between two customers.

All cut and wrap charges are covered by TCC and included in your total price per lb cost. All you’ll pay is the hanging weight times the cost per pound shown below, depending on which wrap type you prefer plus ID sales tax.
Both wrap options provide superior protection for freezing your beef and pulling it out to defrost as needed. White paper typically allows for a freezer life of one year while vacuum seal allows for one - two years freezer life.
White Butcher Paper: Wakefield Meats, Melba, Idaho
1/4 beef: $4.75/lb/hanging weight
Clear Vacuum Seal: Greenfield Custom Meats, Meridian, ID
1/4 beef: $5.00/lb/hanging weight
In our most recent harvest, the average 1/4 beef hanging weight was 200 lbs. The weight of beef that the customer gets is typically 60-65% of the hang weight. That would be 120 lbs from a 1/4 beef at 200 lbs. Weights will vary by animal as we finish them out until they meet our high standards for delivery to our customers.
For an idea of cost per wrap type:
Vacuum seal: 200 lbs x $5.00 = $1000 + tax = $1,060
Butcher paper: 200 lbs x $4.75 = $950 + tax = $1,007
