The hanging weight, also known as the "Hot Carcass" weight, refers to the actual weight of the animal after slaughter, excluding the skin, head, and most internal organs. The total price includes processing and delivery charges. The amount you receive, known as the "yield," should be approximately 70-75 percent of the hanging weight. This percentage may vary depending on the cutting instructions you provide and the items you choose to accept or decline.
Consider this example: If you have a live animal weighing 300 lbs, you can expect the following approximate weights:
- A carcass with a hanging weight of around 200 lbs.
- Approximately 120-160 lbs of finished, ready-to-eat meat.
Please note that the specific weight you receive will vary depending on the cutting instructions you provide. Factors such as bone-in or boneless cuts, as well as your decision regarding organ meats, will affect the final weight.
While the size of the carcass may vary, the yield percentages typically range between 70-80%. As a rough estimation for freezer space, you can consider that 30 lbs of packaged meat occupies approximately 1 cubic foot. Therefore, a whole hog yielding 120-160 lbs of meat would require around 4-6 cubic feet of freezer space.
Regarding pricing, a whole hog is priced at $3.89 per lb. of hanging weight. This translates to an approximate finished weight price of $5.50/lb (ranging from $4.84/lb to $6.45/lb depending on your cutting instructions and yield).

We have started receiving this question a lot. We do not. Our standards for our grass fed beef are the following:
- No Hormones or Steroids
- MRNA Free
Absolutely! We are proud to offer a 100% Unconditional Customer Satisfaction Guarantee on our pork. If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your pork, please inform us, and we will be more than happy to replace or refund your order with a cheerful attitude.
Our pork is carefully packaged using heavy-duty materials and a reliable vacuum seal by our trusted butcher. This packaging ensures the longevity of the pork, allowing it to remain in excellent condition indefinitely. However, we recommend following the USDA guidelines, which suggest using the pork within 1 year for optimal freshness.
In rare instances, a seal may break after you receive your pork. In such cases, we advise using those packages first to maintain the quality and freshness of the pork.
As a general guideline, you can estimate approximately 1 cubic foot of freezer space for every 30 lbs of beef. For example, a quarter cow would require around 3 cubic feet, a half cow around 6 cubic feet, and a whole cow around 12 cubic feet of freezer space. This should give you a rough idea to help you plan accordingly.

How Do We Farm?
PASTURE-RAISED, CLIMATE-POSITIVE FARMING
Welcome to Henry Pastures, where we prioritize sustainable farming practices that promote healthy soil and happy animals. Here are our five Soil Health Laws that we follow to maintain healthy soil and help combat global warming:
- Limit Disturbance: We avoid tilling, which tears apart the soil structure and disrupts the delicate balance of soil life. Instead, we use a state-of-the-art paddock design that limits disturbance and allows our animals to move freely while promoting rest and recovery of the soil.
- Armor the Soil: We protect our soil from erosion by keeping it covered with vegetation or organic materials, such as cover crops, crop residues, or animal manure. This helps retain moisture, reduce soil temperature, and enhance nutrient cycling.
- Promote Diversity: We believe that diversity is key to a healthy ecosystem, so we promote diversity in our cropping system and avoid monoculture. This enhances the function of our ecosystem and improves soil structure and fertility.
- Maintain Living Roots in the Soil: We ensure that our soil is always covered with living plants, including fall-seeded biennials, which feed the soil biology and provide carbon, the basic food source for soil organisms. This helps maintain soil health and fertility.
- Integrate Animals: We integrate our animals into our farming practices, recognizing that nature does not work without animals. Our animals graze on plants, stimulating them to pump more carbon into the soil by cycling more carbon out of the atmosphere and putting it into the soil. This helps sequester carbon from the atmosphere and move us in the right direction for combating global warming.
At Henry Pastures, we are proud to be soil farmers, committed to following our Soil Health Laws to promote healthy soil and help combat global warming while producing high-quality beef that is both delicious and environmentally sustainable.
How do we treat our animals?
At our farm, we believe in taking a holistic approach to farming that prioritizes the health of our soil, our animals, and our community. Our philosophy is to put our cattle to work for the benefit of the soil, while also ensuring their comfort and well-being. As I always say, "We strive to give our animals the best life possible, with only one bad day for them, and us."
We believe this results in meat that is higher in nutrients and healthy fats than conventionally raised alternatives. Raising a new standard isn’t the easiest way, but we believe it’s the only way forward.... It also tastes... AAAAAmazzzzing!!
Our animals are moved throughout the year, even in the winter, to provide them with fresh ground to graze on and rest in. This helps promote soil health by preventing overgrazing and allowing the soil to rest and recover. In addition, we provide our animals with shade on hot days and shelter during cold weather to ensure their comfort and well-being.
We understand that cattle are incredible animals that can survive in difficult conditions, but we still strive to go above and beyond to ensure their comfort and health. That's why we monitor our animals daily to ensure they have access to fresh feed and water and are comfortable in their environment.
At our farm, we believe in treating our animals with respect and care, while also using their natural behaviors to promote the health of our soil. We are proud to be stewards of both our animals and our land, and we are committed to sustainable farming practices that benefit both.
