* Pleasantville, TN, Windsor Farms, Roger Windsor, grassfed DEXTER beef, very tender, flavorful, and delicious, Our Dexter cows cost $1.40/pound live weight. The cow will be weighed at Yoder Brothers, so the final price will be determined at that time. Meat will be frozen, vacuum-wrapped in plastic and labeled with the cut type. Customers fill out the Yoder Bros slaughter order form in advance to select styles of cut types they want, as well as amount of hamburger and fat content. Customers pay the cost of Yoder’s processing.
Here is an example of the cost of a processed Dexter cow from a past order:
Cow live weight — 600 pounds. At $1.40/pound, this comes to $840
Slaughter cost — $184
Total customer cost — $1024
Finish weight (retail cuts): 258 pounds
Final Cost was $3.97 per pound for retail cuts
Windsor Farm will deliver the cow to Yoder Brothers in Paris, TN. Customers are responsible for picking up their order from Yoder’s. If we have room in our vehicle when we pick up our meat, we will bring your meat back to our house to be picked up before thawing. Payment — A $500 non-refundable deposit will reserve your cow. A written agreement and receipt will be provided by Windsor Farm at time of deposit payment. The balance will be paid in cash one day prior to pickup. (Note: Your final cost will be determined by the actual weight of the cow and processing costs. Cost may be above or below the example given above, only the $1.40/pound of live weight is fixed. Cow weights, amount of final cuts, and costs per pound vary slightly due to individual differences between animals.) Keep in mind that the Dexter cow is about 1/2 size of an Angus, so judge how much beef you want for your freezer accordingly. According to the USDA, allow “one cubic foot of freezer space for each 35-40 pounds of cut and wrapped meat. Allow slightly more space when the meat is packaged in odd shapes.” Freezer dimensions are usually noted on a sticker inside the freezer. Contact Roger Windsor to order, at (931) 593-3113, 717 Lower Cane Creek Road, Pleasantville, TN.
