Our Aberdeen Black Angus Beef is sold based on the dressed weight go the animal - which is the weight when they are first hung to begin dry-aging. As the meat ages and tenderizes, some weight is lost due to the evaporation of moisture in the meat. Weight is also lost during th trimming and cotton pprocess when some fat and bones must be discarded. An average sized quarter weighs around 170-200 lbs and will lose 25% of its weight through these processes. Please keep this weight reduction in mind when placing your order.
