Hereof, how much is beef per pound hanging weight?

As an example let's say you are ordering a side of beef from an animal with a live weight of 1,000 lbs and a hanging weight of 600 lbs. The hanging weight of the side you are receiving is 300 lbs. Your total cost, assuming a $5.50 price per pound of hanging weight would be $1,650, (300 lbs x $5.50).

How many pounds of meat is a side of beef?

An average beef carcass weighs about 600 pounds. A side usually weighs slightly over 300 lbs. This refers to the hanging weight or the gross weight by which the carcass is sold. Remember: the price that one pays is based on the hanging weight.
