What are some resources for determining the value of various cuts of beef based on hanging weight and other factors?

J.S.MinnesotaAnswer: Thank you for contacting ATTRA, the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service, for information on determining beef yields. Below are a few resources that should be helpful to you.The first link is to Colorado State and can give an idea of how a carcass would cut out by grade. The link is as follows: http://beefcutoutcalculator.agsci.colostate.edu:8080/apex/f?p=102:1:1685335381843811The second is a direct marketing tool for lockers or farmers from Kentucky Meat Science. The link is as follows:http://www.uky.edu/Ag/KyMeat/aids.htmlThere is also a meat yield calculator from Vermont that I have found helpful. You can find the calculator and additional information at http://www.uvm.edu/livestock/beef/?Page=meatyield.html.
