Dry-aged 14 – 21 days!

The Cut Sheets / Order Forms below are for Spring 2024 Custom Butcher.  

We offer Custom Cut Whole and Half beef in the fall and in the spring. (We do NOT give our cattle any mRNA vaccines.) We will transport your cow to one of our quality custom butchers in New Mexico –  You choose where you want to pick up your meat; A & M Meat Processing LLC in Alamogordo, Matthews Custom Meat Processing in Belen (fall butcher only), Jaramillo’s Custom Meat Processing in Los Lunas or Fort Sumner Processing in Fort Sumner. Your total cost for a Whole cow (around 400 lb of meat) will be approximately $3,700 or $9.25/lb of take-home meat. For Half a cow (around 200 lb) your total cost will be approximately $1,850, or $9.25/lb of take-home meat. You can split a whole, or a half beef with a friend and have your meat labeled and boxed or bagged individually.

If you would like to order just a Quarter of a custom cut beef, and are not able to find someone to split a half beef with, please send us an email with your name and phone number, and which butcher you’d like to use. Once we have secured a second quarter beef request for that butcher, we will contact both of you and have you get together to complete the cut sheet and proceed with the order.

This is the “live” animal you will buy from us at $2.95/lb live weight (avg. is 1,000 lb) which comes to around $2,950 for a Whole beef or $1,475 for Half a beef. We’ll weigh the beef before transport to the butcher and send you an invoice for the balance to us. 

These are the sides of beef (carcasses) hanging, or dry-aging, at the butcher for two to three weeks for optimum eating experience. You will pay the butcher around $700 for them to process a whole beef; around $350 for half a beef.

This is your take home meat, packaged individually. It may be vacuum packed or double wrapped with butcher paper and plastic, depending on what the butcher offers. Your total cost for everything will be around $3,700 for a whole beef ($1,850 for half a beef) or $9 – $9.25/lb of meat.

The Process…

In a nutshell, we sell you the cow, we then take it to the butcher of your choice, and you pay them for their services when you pick up your meat:

1. You complete the cut sheet for the butcher of your choice. Once submitted, you will be directed to our deposit page, where you pay the required deposit for the cow ($400 for half a cow; $800 for a whole cow).

If you want to share, or split, a whole cow with a friend, you can each submit your own cut sheet and pay the deposit, and cross reference each other in the comment box on the cut sheet. For splitting half a beef, (each a quarter) use one cut sheet together and sort the meat out when you get it home.

 2. In September, a few days before we transport your cow to the butcher of your choice, we weigh it and send you an invoice for the balance based on its’ weight.* (Some customers send us a check periodically throughout the year so as not have to pay one large payment in the fall.) When you pick up your meat from the butcher 3 – 4 weeks later, you pay them for their services. Your meat packages will be frozen, and labeled individually.

For the balance payment on the cow (or half cow) we accept ACH (E-Check), personal check, cashiers check or credit card. (A 2.5% fee will be added to credit card payments.)


The various cuts on beef

Spring & Fall Custom Cut Beef Testimonials

There is a reason that I drive 450 miles for your beef. Your beef is simply the very best tasting grass fed beef that I have ever had. And believe me, I have searched for beef of equal quality in both Arizona and Oregon, but nothing can match your beef. Incredibly good flavor. Every time I cook even a hamburger, I am just amazed at how much better the flavor is than other beef that I have had. Keep up the good work.
Tim Flinn, Prescott, AZ

Once again, the meat is amazing. We did try some places here locally to avoid having a 16 hour round trip and while they were good, its just not the same as your beef. My wife even notices the difference and she really isn’t a beef eater. Tonight she asked for a steak (last time she asked for a steak was the first time we bought from you). My wife said we should order a whole for the Spring butcher now and just buy a larger freezer.
P. Waller, Selma, TX

I am so very happy with my beef. The flavor and quality is fantastic.
Thank you for your commitment to raise grass-fed beef and make it
available on-line.
R. Grimes, Roswell

This is our 4th side of beef that we have bought over the last several years, all from different ranches. JX Ranch beef is definitely at the top of the list for taste, tenderness and texture, the 3 T’s that we look for in our beef. The processor Tom and Mimi use does a very professional job cutting and packaging your beef.  One last thing; the customer service at JX is top notch also.  JX Ranch is a very real blessing to us and we hope to be able to do business with them this coming year. Thanks so much Tom & Mimi. Sincerely,
D & D Douglas Las Cruces

I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to you to thank you. Your beef is always the best quality and it is always  a pleasure to do business with you.
Mike L., Albuquerque, NM

Thank you, Mimi, for the delivery in Alamogordo. What a help this is. We are looking forward to enjoying your great beef again. Thank you again for the meat, the spatula, and the delivery.
Mack and Gayrene W., Las Cruces, NM

Your beef is by far the best we have ever eaten. We bought it to see if our sons could eat it (they have stomach issues with regular beef). They loved it and there was no stomach upset. My husband wasn’t in agreement with me buying it in the first place, but after he cooked up and ate the first set of burgers he was a believer. Thank you so much for caring for your animals and your customers.
T. Rodriguez, Los Lunas

I wanted to let you know that we are SO very pleased with the beef. We’ve tried a few different items so far and the taste is wonderful! I usually hate the smell of cooking beef, but not yours!
A. Goertz, Velarde

The beef that we bought from you this fall is excellent, as usual. I have tried several of the cuts and have been very pleased with all of them. Because of allergies and sensitivities to many things added to our foods, your beef is the only beef I can easily and comfortably digest. Thanks for making great food available to us!
Cynthia B., Clovis, NM

I am definitely going to order again this fall. We love the beef and the way its cut. Perfect.
Rob Hutchison, El Paso, TX

The beef is, as always, great! We are enjoying the various cuts of meat and learning new recipes is keeping us busy…the meat is too good to waste on bad recipes. 🙂 We appreciate your efforts, and will definitely be buying another quarter next year.
Jason R., Albuquerque, NM

We are enjoying our beef very much! The quality is exceptional as usual!
B. Atkinson, El Paso, TX

Every cut of beef from this cow has been very very tender. The beef almost tastes like the cow ate butter every day. LOL!!!! Very tasty. We are very pleased. Thank you very much for what you do and keep the beef coming.
R & L Aragon, Clovis, NM

Everything is perfect!! Thanks for making it so easy.
Kristi B., Glencoe, NM
