SEAGRAVES HEREFORD FARMS
All of our Beef is American born, raised and processed. The beef you will be purchasing are Hereford and Hereford Cross and are 14-16 months old when they are harvested. They are fed Corn and Rye silage that we raise ourselves, mixed with hominy and distillers grain. They are given NO HORMONES. Steers are kept in large runs or pastures where they are free to run and graze, they drink fresh well water, and are NEVER confined to a feedlot.
The average weight of our beef calves are 1,100+ pounds. Price per pound is $1.80. That is $1,980 for a whole beef delivered to the processor. Processing for a whole beef is $450-$500. So the estimated cost for a whole beef processed is $2400. You can expect about 450 pounds of meat from a whole beef. So your cost per pound is about $5.00-$6.50 that includes steaks, roast, round steak, and burger. This is a HUGE saving compared to grocery store prices on fresh beef. These figures are all based on a 1,100 pound steer, so prices will vary. Everything is done by weight so you get what you pay for.
Our cattle have been bred for carcass quality and yield. Our steer consistently dress 60-64%, this is a huge factor in determining how much meat you will get from a beef steer. For years we have selected bulls based on better marbling traits and bigger Ribeye area. All steers and NOT created equal, genetics and herd health are top priority on our farm, so fill your freezer with confidence.
The biggest advantage in buying local beef is that you know where your beef comes from, 90% of the meat in the supermarket does NOT tell where it was born, raised, and processed and even if the package does say that it is a product of the USA, that may not be accurate. Also there will be nothing added to your beef, it will be 100% BEEF, no water, no preservatives, and no pink slime.
We sell whole or 1/2 a beef by live weight. After we deliver your beef to the processor we will let you know the exact amount when
we get the weight at drop off. You will then mail a check to Seagraves Farms 2047 Hwy 93 Pocahontas, AR 72455.
That is for the beef and you will pay for the processing in 2-4 weeks when you pick up your beef.
Once you receive the message or call from us letting you know that your beef has been delivered we ask that you call Vonallmen at 417-867-5565 and let them know how you want everything worked up. If this is your first time purchasing farm fresh beef they will walk you thru all the cuts and the options to ensure that you get what you want. Also let them know if you would like to let you beef hang as long as possible. We recommend 21 days, for the best steaks. Processing takes 2-4 weeks.

Thank you for your interest in our American raised beef. When you buy from local farmers and ranchers, you help support American agriculture and American families, and you also help to ensure that there will always be a safe affordable American Food supply. If the American family farm dies, the American consumer will be left at the mercy of other countries to provide them with food, that is something that NEVER needs to happen. We appreciate you and GOD BLESS!
