    Ok, we picked up our meat this morning, and the math in the previous post was all wrong. The actual hanging weight was 764#, and we got 398# of finished product. The actual cost per pound is $5.55/lb. Last year’s was $5.62/lb.
    The owner said he normally sell 3-5 calves per month for slaughter but has sold 87 in the last 60 days. The media’s meat shortage prediction has been great for this guy!:thumb:

    The t-bone or porterhouse is my favorite cut and as you know @Mad Professor I'm a pretty good sized fella but there's no way even I could polish off a 3.42 lb steak in one sitting......sure would be nice to try tho. :)

    For those that might not know the difference between a t-bone and porterhouse......they're pretty much the same steak except you get more of the filet with a porterhouse.

    That would be roughly 1.7 lbs. per steak......I'm pretty sure I could handle one of those. :)
