      I’m not Charlotte, but…. It depends on the beef! LOL!

      Some beef dresses out
      (this is after the butchering and the gutting, but before the cutting up) at 200
      lbs and others at 600 lbs. I think the largest beef I have ever seen dressed
      out at 675 lbs. It just depends on the bred of the critter and how old it was
      (yearlings or two year olds are smaller than 4 or 5 year olds, steers are larger
      than cows).

      If there is a question about whether or not your freezer will hold it, you can
      still make a savings by purchasing the 4H beef, having it butchered, then
      sharing the beef and the cost with family or friends. If you have to share it
      with several friends! It will still be cheaper than buying beef at the store.
