Hanging out in the truck while Daddy takes care of cattle. The cattle always love when dogs, children, and small animals come around. They look really cute when they're curious with their head forward, ears pricked forward, and mischievous look on their face.

We have beef in our freezer. This is what we have available right now. In 2 weeks, we will be getting more and have other cuts not listed available again.
Ground beef- $4.25/PKG
Cubed Steak (4 per PKG)- $4/PKG
Chuck Roast- $4/lb
Sirloin- (2 steak/pkg) $8/lb
Ribeye- (2 steak/pkg) $10/lb
Arm Roast- $4/lb

I add that these juices are very flavorful and when you cook them all out, IMO the steak doesn't taste near as good.

Did you know?

The red liquid on the plate when eating a rare steak is not blood. It is a protein called myoglobin, which distributes oxygen to the muscles.

All blood has been removed from the carcass during the slaughtering process. There is no such thing as a bloody steak.

Freezer Paper vs Vacuum Pack - Read this to Save Money - HighKitchenIQ

https://highkitcheniq.com/freezer-paper-vs-vacuum-pack/

In our experience paper wrap lasts up to 2 years before freezer burning takes over not 12 months or less as this article states however our butchers have always done a layer of plastic and then a layer of paperwrap which helps it last longer than solely paperwrap. There are definite benefits of vacuum seal over paper wrap.

However, paper wrap is definitely better than the plastic tubing if you won't be eating the meat within a year. Also tubing is much more likely to tear and rip. This is what is used at W & W Locker currently.

How do we care for our cattle?

We have two places we keep cattle at. Our house and Adam's parents. Daily chores involve feeding the calves at our house twice a day and checking on the cattle at the other place once a day. At our house we have barrels of feed, a watering trough, and small square bales of hay that we give them. This enables us to ration their feed at a young age which protects them from getting bloated, but when they are bigger they get a self feeder, self waterer, and large round bales of hay to eat from or an all you can eat buffet. We of course check to see if they need fresh bedding and if the barrels or automatic feeders need refilled and we need to grind feed.

All our hay and feed is corn is NON-GMO and naturally raised. We grind our own feed which consists of corn, hay, and minerals. Holsteins and beef eat a bit differently the first half of their life. We feed beef mostly hay with just a small amount of grain and we feed the Holsteins need more grain in their diet during this time but eventually they both eat about the same amount of hay and grain. Occasionally we get a persnickety Holstein that won't eat any hay or we get a beef calf that only wants hay or eats mostly hay. For small calves, we add molasses into their grain but slowly ration it out. Bottle calves are of course given a milk bottle twice a day of 2 quarts of milk and at 2 weeks old we give them the option of calf nuggets and hay. This is needed to start/develop the ruminating process in their stomachs.

Whenever we purchase calves, they stay at our house first to make sure they are healthy and then we also bring all the younger ones to our house to get them up to around 600 lbs before we take them over to the in laws where we feed them out the rest of the way.

We rarely ever have to give any of the calves any medicine and they don't get any vaccinations with us. Our goal is to give them a healthy and happy environment so they don't get sick. A stressed calf is much more likely to get sick than a happy one. Also stress affects nutrient absorption and the tenderness and flavor quality of the meat.

What are we up to on our little farm this time of year?

This time of year on our farm we repair any equipment that needs it, we spread manure we've collected throughout the year onto our hay field, we sell any extra hay we have before it's time to bale our first cutting, and we buy calves. We also cut wood for our outdoor wood burner when weather permits. We also enjoy extra time with Daddy/Adam to just hang out when he is off work.

From Spring thru Fall, when farming and other outdoor projects pick up, we don't get as much time with him though we enjoy watching him farm and helping out where we can.

Here is the butcher appointments we currently have available this year. $2.50/lb hangweight to us and you pay butcher but if you order a whole or get others to go in on a whole with you then it's $2.25/lb hangweight and you pay the butcher. We will of course be doing our best to keep our freezers stocked for those who order in smaller amounts.

One of the many calves God has blessed us with so we can bless you with food. We have 16 cattle right now of varying sizes to fulfill our butcher appointments for 2022 and 2023. This is our smallest, a little bottle calf. He decided he wanted to run around and play after getting his milk.

We have 200# ground beef available for anyone that wants to restock their freezer! Due to an increase in price for paperwrapping, which allows the meat to last in the freezer for up to 2 years instead of for 1 year, our price per lb is $4.25/lb. God bless!

11/23/2021

Due to different factors, we had to raise the price of our ground beef to $4.25/lb and the price of our roasts to $3.50/lb. Thank you for your understanding. Prices otherwise are still the same. Cubed steak is $4/pkg. Hamburger Patties are $8.50/pkg.

10/15/2021

I know I don't post super often, but we are doing great. Coming up is our last 2021 butcher appointment. We will have freezer restocked from that butcher appointment. Let me know if you need anything. I've already got a waiting list for certain cuts of meat from that. My husband and I need to decide what butcher appointments for next year we will be keeping and which ones we will not. We had to book them over a year in advance so we booked extra to be safe. Once we figure that out, I will let you know when our first 2022 butcher appointment will be. We have 6 calves in our barn here right now and 7 calves at our other place, 3 of which will be going in on October 20th to W&W Locker. All our roast prices will be raised to $3.50/lb for freezer beef but otherwise we are still keeping our prices the same for now. God bless you all and thank you for your business! We love all our customers! Both small order ones and large order ones!

Got 3 new smaller calves last night that are doing well! Blessed again! The black one is named Chucky and was a pet for the previous owners whose horse was very upset at seeing him go. The other two came from a wonderful couple who we were very blessed to meet and have the pleasure of doing business with.

10/15/2020

Picked corn last week for our cattle. Non-gmo. Got around 250 bushes/acre! Yay God for an awesome harvest!

10/15/2020

Got a couple new steers for feeding out from some awesome folks! Very healthy. When they arrived they immediately started exploring everything. Sniffing everything, checking out food areas, sleep areas, and water. They introduced themselves to the other cattles with moos and sniffs. It was so much fun to watch! Love getting healthy cattle!

Curious cattle. When their ears go forward it means they're highly interested in something or curious. A tune I heard as a teenager is one I think of when I see them all chilling from a CD called "Philidelphia Chickens" that goes "Cows, we're remarkable cows..."

09/21/2020

Here in a few weeks, we will be getting a new batch of high quality calves to feed out from some wonderful friends. :) I am looking forward to having a new batch! I will post pictures when we have unloaded them!

09/21/2020

We have changed our business name to better represent what we do for our company. Yes, we sell beef and that is the main purpose for this site. But we also sell quality feeder cattle for others to finish raising out and we raise high quality hay that we sell in small squares. And since we only raise beef and we do not do pork or chicken as we found beef is our niche we also felt the name change was necessary. Love to all! :)

Whenever I say we are sold out that means we have nothing available for new sales that does not affect reserved or spoken for amounts meat. So those who put their name in for meat in June, July, and for December, I have that written down and that is sold to you even though you havent paid for it yet.

06/12/2020

We are sold out of meat we can sell from our freezer now until December. If anything with that would change for some reason, I'll let you know but that's where we stand at this time. Thank you to all our customers we appreciate and love you all!

05/16/2020

Update: Couldn't get any in January but got two planned for February 4th. December SOLD. 3/4 is going to ourselves for our small amount customers and for our own eating.

05/14/2020

All of May and July is sold. Due to high demand of meat and folks booking their 4H animals, we cannot get any butchered again until December and January as butcher shops are full up till then but we have some going in December and January. At least 3.5 available possibly more.

Yep. Just a meat shortage in the stores. Plus even if you're paying more up front you are saving money by buying this way/its cheaper than the store in the long run by quite a bit of money actually and especially if you buy more than just ground beef from the store. And when you buy individual meats from us we keep our prices similar to store prices but for a much higher quality meat. I could go on about the stark contrast between store bought meat and what we sell. Some private sellers raise their animals no different than those that go to the slaughter house and the meat quality is no different. I can tell you what to look out for or what questions to ask so you're not buying the same quality of meat that you get in the store. If you have questions PM me!

It really is this simple. It doesn't take much effort to find numbers for local farms and once you talk with a farmer, he/she will know the numbers for the local butchers.

By buying the steer directly from the farmer and by paying the processing fees to the butcher, you cut out all the middlemen and don't have the additional costs of USDA certification, etc...

You'll end up with better quality meat and help local businesses during these difficult times..

UPDATE: All of July and May SOLD. We will have at least 1.5 available in December and at least 2 in January.
These two will be going to butcher in May and July for beef in our freezer. If anyone wants quarters, halves, or whole the one going in July or the one going in May can be sold in parts but we need to keep one or the other for our freezer. The one in May is being butchered in at Integrity Meats at Churubusco and the one in July is at W&W. $2.50 lb hang weight for quarter or $2.25/lb hang weight if you get a half and $2.00/lb hang weight if you get a whole then you pay butcher fee. If you cant fit a half or whole in your freezer or afford you can find some friends or family to go in on one with you.

03/30/2020

We were able to get a steer booked for the first week of May so in a little over one month we will have all options available again!
