We have a limited number of purebred Wagyu beef quarters for sale in Colorado that we finished on field peas and alfalfa hay. This was done because field pea finished beef has been shown by North Dakota State University1 to provide the most preferred flavor of any finishing diet for cattle. Sensory panel analysis indicates an increase in tenderness, juiciness and taste when field pea grain is included in cattle diets2. Field peas are a legume and not a grain like corn, oats or barley. This beef should not have the same fatty acid profile as grain fed beef and be nutritionally similar to grass fed. This finishing diet combined with the superior beef quality of purebred Wagyu cattle should provide an amazing quality for any beef lover.
The net weight of the quarters are around 100 lbs. Around 25% are a variety of steaks (rib steak, filet, sirloin, round, sirloin bavette, flank) cut 1" thick in vacuum sealed packages. Around 35% are a variety roasts (chucks and round) weighing 3-4 pounds each and about 40% is burger packaged in 1 pound vacuum sealed package. There are also Dino ribs, brisket, liver and misc. other cuts.
A quarter of beef requires about 4 cubic feet. You will need about one cubic foot of freezer space for every 35 – 40 pounds of packaged meat.
Our purebred Wagyu beef quarters are priced at $19.95 per pound on the actual weight of the finished beef. If the average take home weight is 100 lbs. the total cost not including shipping if necessary is $1995.00.
