We raise beef for sale and have sourced some of the top-quality beef products from Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, and beyond. Different beef breeds and how they are raised and fed all make a difference in the taste and flavor of the meat. We do our best to explain the flavor profiles but suggest you buy and sample for yourself. You’ll notice a difference between grass-fed and corn-fed. You can taste the difference between Longhorn, Angus, and cross-breed show cattle.
Below are explanations to help you make your selection.
Buying a side of beef refers to purchasing half of a steer and having it processed into individual cuts of meat. This allows you to have a variety of cuts to choose from and the flexibility to choose how the beef is processed.
Here is a general overview of what you can expect to receive when you purchase a side of beef:
Buying beef in bulk sides means purchasing a large amount of beef at one time. Specifically, a side of beef refers to one-half of a beef process, which is typically divided into various cuts of meat, such as steaks, roasts, and ground beef. When you buy beef in bulk sides, you are essentially purchasing a significant portion of the animal, which can be a cost-effective way to stock up on meat.
We offer bulk beef sales from our herd or from family/neighboring ranches, which can be a great way to support your local economy and ensure that the meat you are buying is fresh and of high quality. When you buy and order in sides or quarters, you can specify the type of cuts your family likes including the beef-to-fat ratio in hamburgers and the thickness of steaks.
While buying beef in bulk sides can require a larger upfront investment than buying meat on a per-pound basis, it can often be a more cost-effective option in the long run.
Ground beef, typically in 1-2 pound packages
The cuts you receive will depend on how the beef is processed and how it is divided between the different cuts. When you purchase a side of beef, you typically have the option to specify which cuts you would like to receive and how you would like them processed (e.g. fat content).
Buying a side of beef can be a cost-effective way to purchase meat, especially if you have the freezer space to store it. It can also be a great way to support local farmers and have access to high-quality, locally-raised beef.
If you’re a fan of meaty snacks, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to share some information about what makes our products stand out from the rest.
First, let’s talk about beef jerky. Our jerky is made from high-quality cuts of beef that are seasoned and smoked to perfection. We use only the finest ingredients, including natural spices and seasonings, to create a flavor that will have you coming back for more. Our beef jerky is also free from any artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors, so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious snack.
But what sets our beef jerky apart from the rest is our commitment to quality. We source our beef from trusted suppliers, and we use only whole-muscle cuts of meat in our jerky. As lovers of beef jerky, we’ve come up with a process that allows for thinker chunks of meat that are processed with enough moisture content to allow for a chewy and moist product, not dry and hard on your teeth like many jerky’s on the market. This means you can be sure you’re getting a snack that’s not only tasty but also wholesome and ethical.
Now, let’s move on to our smoked shrink-wrapped sausages. These sausages are made using the same high-quality ingredients and ethical sourcing practices as our beef jerky. We use natural casings and smoke our sausages over real hardwood for a rich, smoky flavor that’s hard to beat.
Our sausages are also vacuum-sealed in shrink wrap to lock in freshness and flavor. This means you can enjoy a tasty snack on the go, whether you’re hiking, camping, or just running errands.
Elgin-Patagonia area SRVVBeef will continue to focus on producing the best 100% Grass-Fed Beef in Arizona from Birth to Harvest. When you see the beautiful rolling grasslands of the pristine San Rafael Valley, it’s easy to understand why this meat tastes so good. These beautiful Angus-Hereford cross cattle are born on the 7000 ac Lazy J2 Ranch and live their whole lives free range, eating native Arizona grass and drinking pure water in the most humane and respectful conditions.
San Rafael Valley Beef is Raised on Native Arizona Grasses that grow on one of the West’s last intact short-grass prairies… and the headwater of the Santa Cruz River. A wilderness setting of rolling grasslands, towering cottonwoods, and winding river beds are surrounded by towering mountain ranges that protect the valley and provide a unique setting for one of the most verdant grasslands in the SouthWest. Pure water and a unique blend of native grasses and naturally marble beef give it a rich, robust flavor.

The amount of meat you will receive from a half steer can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the breed, age, and weight of the animal, as well as how it is processed and the cuts you select.
However, on average, you can expect to receive approximately 240-260 pounds of meat from a half steer, after processing and trimming. This can vary based on the yield of each cut, with some cuts having a higher yield and some having a lower yield.
It’s important to note that the weight of the meat will be less than the live weight of the animal, as some weight is lost during processing and trimming. When you purchase a half steer, you will typically pay for the hanging weight of the animal, which is the weight after it has been butchered and the head, feet, and internal organs have been removed. The hanging weight can be anywhere from 40-60% of the live weight, depending on the size of the animal.
