beef-cattlePULLMAN, Wash. – Whole and half beef from steers born and raised at Washington State University – cut and wrapped to buyer specifications – is for sale for $2.99 per pound.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected high quality Angus beef will be dry-aged for a minimum of 15 days unless the buyer requests a shorter aging time.

A half typically weighs 375 to 425 pounds; so cost for a 400-pound side would be $1,196. Mixed quarters will be available, but may not be cut to buyer specifications.

Purchases help fund beef cattle research and support education and hands-on experiences for WSU graduate and undergraduate animal sciences students.
