Beef Cut Sheet
Thank you for ordering from Wood Farms. This form is meant to make the process of buying a side of beef easier than it has ever been before.
In this sheet, we will walk you through every cut option from a side of beef.
Cut options vary from butcher to butcher. The options below match the ways that Wood Farms processes beef.
On the next page, you will see a diagram of the primal cuts of beef. We ask that you familiarize yourself with each primal.
While going through the cut sheet, please keep in mind your overall desire for what you want with your side of beef.

- Do you cook a lot of ground beef? If so, we recommend grinding a few of the roast options to get more ground beef.
- Do you enjoy cooking roasts and steaks? If so, we recommend leaving these whole instead of grinding them.
- The more roasts and steaks you leave whole, the less ground beef you will have. You will still get plenty of ground beef back if you leave these cuts whole – so don’t think you have to grind everything.
- We advocate keeping as many cuts whole as possible. Each cut of beef has its own texture and flavor profile. By keeping these cuts whole, you will know what you like in the future. It will also allow you to expand on your knowledge as a home cook.
- If you choose to keep all of your roasts and other cuts whole, you can still expect around 60 lbs of ground beef.
