Wisconsin Meadows™ Pastured Pork: cryovac sealed, frozen and delivered to your door!
WGBC Wholesale Program/Terms – Direct to Consumer Purchases
The Wisconsin Grass-fed Beef Cooperative sells wholesale product, direct to consumers, for a whole hog by hanging weight. Hanging weight, also called “Hot Carcass” weight is the actual weight of the animal shortly after it is slaughtered, minus skin, head, and most internal organs. Processing and delivery charges are included in the total WGBC price/lb. Some producers advertise a cheap hanging weight price, which can make your purchase sound like a real bargain, though most people are used to seeing the weight of the meat after it is processed. Make sure you understand what you’re ordering. Ask what kind of yield you can expect from the hanging weight; in other words, how much meat you’ll be putting in your freezer. It should be approximately 70-80 percent of the hanging weight depending on the cutting instructions you choose and the items you accept or decline.
Here is an example:
A 320 lb, live, finished animal will result in approximately:
– 220 lb hanging weight carcass, which will result in approximately:
– 180 lb of finished, table ready meat.
The actual finished weight you receive will depend on the cutting instructions you choose. Regardless of cutting instructions, there will also always be a “Shrink” or water weight loss, as the carcass hangs and loses moisture.
The size of your carcass may vary but the yield percentages will usually remain in the 70-80 % range.
Pricing: Pricing for a whole hog is $4.99 per lb hanging weight.
Unlike many farm direct programs, all costs of processing, packaging and delivery to your home are included in our price.
