Now is the time to plan ahead and reserve your beef! The butchering season begins in July and runs through October. Our Quarters are semi-custom. This means that you get to choose from two options for how your beef is cut. We offer “mixed” Quarters. Your Quarter comes from a side of beef divided into two equal parts.   A set delivery date is provided when we confirm your order. The earlier you order, the more flexibility there is in scheduling the day to receive your beef.

Read over options #1 and #2 below and then submit your order. Remember that the weights and amounts listed are approximate and will vary according to the weight and size of the specific animal that your Quarter comes from. The numbers in the chart are based on an average 185lb wet hanging weight. Our Quarters range from 150lb to over 240lb. Beef yield is approximately 60% of the wet hanging weight. Shrinkage occurs from dry aging and trimming the beef. Thus, a 185lb Quarter will provide approximately 110lbs of beef– cut, labelled, brown-wrapped, and frozen. 

If you have a preference for more or less beef, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate a larger or smaller Quarter.

  • The Details

  • Send in your deposit. A $200 deposit holds your order. Cheques are payable to Trail’s End Beef, Box 1444 Nanton, Alberta T0L 1R0. Or e-transfer to tylerandrachel@trailsendbeef.com .

    Decide if you want offal meats and soup bones with your order. Please note that there is a small additional charge for each item. They are NOT included in the wet hanging weight. A standard amount is set with a Quarter. Additional items are charged at retail pricing.

    Balance is due when we receive the wet carcass weight from the butcher. Your invoice will come via email. All orders must be paid prior to delivery day.

    Beef Price paid to Trail’s End is $4.95/lb, based on wet carcass weight (ranging from 150-240lbs). Remember, the packaged weight will be approximately 60% of the wet hanging weight. That means the beef yield will be approximately 90-145lb. An average Quarter will cost roughly $1000 in total (beef, butchering, and delivery).

    Butcher’s fees will come on your invoice and be payable through Trail’s End. This means you only make one payment. Ranch processing fees are $20 per Quarter. Butchering fees are $1.15/lb wet hanging weight.

    Delivery to a central pick-up location in Calgary is included in your order. Or come and visit the ranch on delivery day! Alternately, you may pick up your beef at Prairie Meats in Coaldale. The delivery day is set when your order is confirmed.
