Hagemann Beef Purchase Terms
Hagemann Beef sells quarters, halves and whole sides of beef. When placing your online deposit please understand that we need to sell a "whole" animal before it is sent in for processing. For example, that could be four quarters requiring four different buyers, or two halves requiring two different buyers. When we receive your deposit you will be put on the official list for the next availability. Most of the time it will be within a month or two before the animal is taken in. We will be in communication as to when we are expecting the next availability. Unfortunately, due to a few bad apples we now require a non-refundable deposit on all quarters, halves and whole orders. It's hard for us to try to sell someone else's custom cuts if you decide to back out or leave the meat sitting at the processor for a long time. This is how we make a living - put food on the table and pay our bills.
We will try our best to use our preferred processor, Johnson's Processing in Chadwick, IL, but reserve the right to use Eickman's Processing in Seward, IL. Having two processors ensures year-round availability. If you wish to contact us prior to placing a deposit to find out availability or ask additional questions please contact us.
WHOLE BEEF - Wholes typically cost between $1,840- $2,300 depending on the weight of the animal and yields between 480 - 600 lbs. of finished cuts. WHOLE PRICING is based on bulk pricing of $2.30/lb. hanging weight. Hanging weight of a whole can vary but is typically 800 - 1000 lbs. (For example: $2.30 x 800 = $1,840) $800 non-refundable deposit, balance due before pick up from the processor.
HALF BEEF - Halves typically cost between $960 - $1,200 depending on the weight of the animal and yields between 220 - 300 lbs. of finished cuts. HALF PRICING is based on bulk pricing of $2.40/lb. hanging weight. Hanging weight of a half can vary but is typically 400 - 500 lbs. (For example: $2.40 x 400 = $960) $600 non-refundable deposit, balance due before pick up from the processor.
QUARTER BEEF - Quarters typically cost between $498- $623 depending on the weight of the animal and yields between 110 - 150 lbs. of finished cuts. QUARTER PRICING is based on bulk pricing of $2.49/ lb. hanging weight. Hanging weight of a quarter can vary but is typically 200 - 250 lbs. (For example: $2.49x 200 = $498) $200 non-refundable deposit, balance due before pick up from the processor.
By placing an online deposit using PayPal or credit card to Hagemann Beef you are agreeing to the following purchase terms:
- I agree that my non-refundable deposit is reserving my selection of a quarter, half or whole beef and that the balance I owe will be due in full, in cash left at the processor or online with a credit card, before the beef is picked up at the processor. Beef must be paid in full before it leaves the processor.
- I agree that it is my responsibility to pick up my beef at the processor in a timely manner within 14 days of being notified that it is ready to pick up. Beef not picked up within 45 days may have the non-refundable deposit forfeited and could be sold to the next buyer on our reservation list unless it is paid in full with a credit card and storage arrangements have been made at the processor.
- I agree that my final balance due is determined by the beef animal’s hanging weight and could vary depending on the size of the animal. I fully understand that Hagemann Beef will inform me of that hanging weight and the corresponding balance that I owe once the animals have been sent for processing, but prior to the availability of pick up.
