Half Beef - High-Quality Bulk Beef for Your Family

** Accepting Orders TODAY to be ready for Shipping/Pickup in 4-8 weeks **

Love the selection of a whole beef order, but don't have the freezer space? Our half beef option is perfect for you. Great for small families, it offers variety and cost savings compared to buying individual cuts to feed the whole group.

Freezer Space Needed?

Minimum of 8 cubic feet (it is a lot of meat)!

How Many Pounds of Beef is a Half Cow?

Organic cows will yield around *220 lbs of beef (avg $12.16/lb).

Steakhouse cows will yield around *240 lbs of beef (avg $7.92/lb).

*Final Order Total Weight will be greater than or equal to estimated yield, never less than.

**Bones are NOT included but can be added on when our representative calls you after your order is placed.

What Cuts Will I Receive?

The cuts usually consist of 20-25% Steaks, 25-35% Roasts, Stew Meat & Short Ribs, and 40-50% Ground Beef, Patties, and Ground Chuck. You can get premium cuts such as Filet Mignon and T-Bones for as low as $7.10 a pound.

Offal (heart, liver, tongue, and oxtail) are included in your order unless you tell us not to include it. We will call and email you after your order is placed to confirm.

Since some cuts only produce 1 per animal, these rare cuts may not exist in your Half order. We do our best to split these single items between the two halves so both receive the same pounds of meat. Each animal differs, but our efforts to raise the best animal possible ensure you are going to get the best cuts possible.

Can I Customize the Standard Cuts?

Yes! After you place your order, a representative will reach out to you to confirm your preferences.

When Will I Receive My Beef?

Up to 6-10 weeks because we don't process Half Beef orders until they are placed and Cut Sheets have been filled out and returned by you, the customer. After placing your Half Beef order, a representative from Prosper Meats will contact you to discuss any preference options that may be available for processing your order and to explain the expected timeline for delivery or pick-up of your order.

How is the Meat Packaged?

Every cut is flash-frozen, vacuum-sealed, and labeled for your convenience.

What is the Difference Between Grass Fed & Finished and Steakhouse Beef?

Organic Grass Fed & Finished Beef (Certified USDA Organic)

Certified USDA Organic cattle are raised on 100% Organic Grass from birth while grazing in open Colorado pastures, never in a feedlot. Very lean beef with little to no fat content. Always antibiotic and hormone-free.

Prosper Steakhouse Beef

Cattle are fed an optimized mixture of Prosper Farms Colorado Grown Hay, Natural Native Grass, Corn, and Distillers Spent Grain. Raised and marketed for high-end steakhouses, you can enjoy the same top-notch quality at home from Prosper Meats with our Prosper Steakhouse cuts. Always hormone-free.

Excellent experience all the way through the process. The meat is delicious

Awesome Company!!

I can’t recommend these guys enough for anyone looking for top notch beef at a great price. A side of beef ended up costing around $7 per lb, you can’t beat that, especially for the quality you receive. Also, I was given 30 lbs of ground beef, some summer sausage, pepperoni sticks and a hoodie just for picking up my order. Try em out, you won’t be disappointed!!

Great meat tender great taste

I prospered, and love it!

My first ever experience with a purchase of this type and they rocked the whole thing. The cuts are beautiful, the meat is tender and just epic, and the bonus of local pick up was quite a joy to experience as well. Thank you Prosper for providing such a clean product, amazing service, and epic experience to my family! We WILL be back!


We love the fact that you have the weight on the package

Half cow review

I have been happy with the purchase so far. I have tried some of the sirloin, NY strip and ground beef. The packaging is done well and I will be a return customer at some point in the future.

Already looking forward to our next purchase!

Myself and my family went in on a half beef together. This was our first time doing this, and so far, it has not disappointed. The meat is packaged great and labeled clearly. You can tell the meat is top tier when eating. It’s an easy decision to do this instead of buying from big chain stores from here on out. The prices are fair and if you compare to prices at the market, you save a lot of money in the long run. Would highly recommend this business and will definitely be purchasing from them again.

Thumbs up!!

Thumbs up to all at Prosper Meats!! Completely satisfied!!
