For a whole bison, you will receive between 290 – 380 lbs of meat. Price & weight may vary depending on the actual weight of the animal. We will provide customers with a cutting instructions form to specify what cuts of meat they would like and how they would like it packaged.

For a 1/2 of bison, you will receive between 166 – 200 lbs of meat. Price & weight may vary depending on the actual weight of the animal. We will provide customers with a cutting instructions form for how they would like their meat packaged.

*processing costs are paid directly to the packing plant when you pick up your order. As of January 2024, this was $1.05 per pound, based on the hanging or split weight for half-bison orders. Additionally, there is a $100 slaughter charge for whole bison orders (that cost is split for half bison orders), plus a $20 single-pack fee per order.

**the hanging weight, a.k.a. carcass weight or hot weight, is NOT the actual amount of meat you will receive. You will receive approximately 60% +/- of the hanging weight.
