Grain Fed Beef
Naturally Wholesome, Tender and Flavourful
The addition of grain in our cattle feed, helps the cattle mature early enough to make their meat tender and flavourful. We have adapted our feeding program to reflect today’s concerns about dietary fat and, therefore, do not over-fatten our cattle.
All our meat is butchered, cut and wrapped in provincially inspected facilities. Our grain-finished product is dry aged for 14 days. During this time the meat’s natural enzymes act as a tenderizer and add flavour to the meat.
Cornell Farms beef is naturally wholesome, tender and flavourful. It provides our beef customers with a consistently great dining experience every time whether it is a t-bone steak on the BBQ or a tender juicy prime rib oven roast.
We sell our grain finished beef two ways – side of beef and beef paks (split side). For more beef information, view these files:

Side of Beef
A side of beef (½ beef) is sold by the hanging weight. Hanging weight is the weight of the animal before it is trimmed and cut. The approximate hanging weight of a side is 300 lbs. The cost is $4.75/lb cut and wrapped. Therefore the approximate cost of a side of beef is $1125. On a 300 lb side, you will take home approximately 200 pounds of actual meat. A side of beef is cut to your specifications.

Beef Pak (Split Side)
A split side of beef (¼ beef) is precut and sold by the actual weight in the box. The approximate weight is 90 to 100 pounds. The cost is $6.75/lb. Therefore, the approximate cost of a beef pak is $600. A beef pak includes the following cuts:
