bulletSTEP 1:  First decide if you want a quarter,  half or a whole animal. (Note: If you only want a quarter, then please try to find someone to split the half with you, however; we usually match up other quarter buyers if this is the case)

  • Half a cow roughly 180 lbs of beef in the package.
  • Quarter cow roughly 90 lbs of beef in the package.
bullet STEP 4:  Call Key Packing and place your packaging order.  After we take the cattle into the packing plant, we will either call you ahead of time or shortly after and notify you that its time to place your order.  Use the Beef Form for beef orders as a guide when placing your packaging order.  Usually, Mrs. Key works the phone and is extremely helpful and patient when taking your order.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask her.

STEP 5: Pick up your beef at Key Packing after you make your final payment .

(final payment includes the oustanding balance and the cost of the slaughter.)
