Is Buying Half a Cow Worth It?

Here at TX Bar, we understand that not everyone will use the amount of beef produced from a full beef, which is why we offer you the option to purchase ½ beef. When buying half a cow from us here at TX Bar, you must wait for someone else to buy the other half of the cow before we can process your order. Don’t worry, we will look after all of this and pair you up with someone, so you won’t have to go find the other person! Find out more about how to buy half a cow here.

Is Buying Half a Cow Worth It?

Economies of scale

One of the main reasons why people tend to buy full and ½ beef is for the money you save from doing it. Buying your meat in bulk makes it a lot easier to meal-plan, saving you time and energy. When you know what meat you have in your freezer, all you have to do is take it out to defrost and you’re ready to go! From an economical perspective, buying half a cow can save you money in the long run. It is more convenient to buy in bulk, compared to buying from your local supermarket every day- all you need to worry about is finding somewhere to store it! When stored in a freezer the meat can last up to twelve months. Half a beef usually produces enough meat to sufficiently feed a family of four, three times a week for twelve months. This allows you to cook a variety of meals, meaning you won’t get bored of eating red meat all the time. 

Better quality meat 

One of the most beneficial things about buying half a cow is that you know exactly where your beef is coming from and you’re supporting a local business! When buying half a cow from TX Bar, you can rest assured that your beef is of the highest quality, free from both antibiotics and hormones. Our grass-fed beef is also rich in nutrients, for more information about the health benefits associated with grass-fed beef, check out our blog about the nutrients in grass-fed beef


Buying half a cow is definitely worth it in the long run. The meat lasts up to 2-3 years if it’s not defrosted or if the vacuum-sealed package is not punctured or compromised. If you don’t think you would use all the cuts of meat from a full cow, ½ is a nice option- you still get roughly 200-250 pounds of beef, but every cow differs. It allows you to plan your meals using high-quality beef. You can also customise your ½ beef order and choose the specific cuts of beef that you would like, and how you would like them wrapped.
