We got another steer killed a few weeks ago now, and I weighed all the cuts of meat so that I could work out the approximate value of the meat and compare the cost of raising a steer to the cost of buying all the meat from the butcher. My article has been published on the Farm Style website, which is a FREE online community for small and hobby farmers to learn everything about farming and country living.
If you want to know more, head over the Farm Style to read the the article and then come back here for comments and questions. Do you raise steers? Is it worth it? Do you have any questions?
