Dotty Angus Cattle Company offers customers multiple ways to purchase our beef products:


For your convenince, we process beef through out the year allowing our beef customers the ability to pre-order beef processed and packaged to their individual specifications. This ensures the freshest beef possible. Doty Angus can be pre-ordered in quarter (minimum amount that can be ordered), half, three-quarter, or a whole beef.

Our beef is priced per pound of hanging weight which is the weight prior to cutting and packaging. Pricing is currently set at $2.50/lb on a quarter, $2.40/lb on a half and $2.30/lb on a whole. Our beef normally averages 220 – 250 pounds per quarter. Processing is approximately $0.83-$1.00 per pound depending on the customer’s requested processing. Customers will receive a specification sheet listing the hanging weight, requested processing and number of packages of each cut received as well as the cost of the processing. Doty Angus will multiply the price of beef when the deposit was made (our agreed upon price) by the hanging weight and add the processing cost, this is the customer’s total price. Most quarters average between $760-$820 for the beef and processing. The total price also includes delivery.


  • Beef – 230 lbs (hanging wt.) x $2.50/lb = $575.00
  • Processing – 230 lbs x $.90 = $207.00
  • Total Price – $575.00 + $207.00 = $782.00

A deposit based on the amount ordered is required; $150.00 per quarter, $300.00 per half, $500.00 for whole. If something should happen that we are not able to supply your beef, your deposit will be promptly refunded to you. If you decide not to go through with your purchase, the deposit is nonrefundable. Your deposit is applied to the total and the balance is due upon pickup.

Each animal has to meet our strict specifications before we will make a locker date. We currently work with two USDA inspected lockers, Dayton Meats in Malcom, Iowa and Sully Locker in Sully, IA .  We typically take in 5 head each month between the two lockers so please call and reserve your beef today. 

Please contact us today to reserve your beef.

Another great option is to purchase our beef in customized bundles. The bundles offer an assortment of ground beef, steaks and roasts. Pricing will vary depending on products, please contact us for a quote.
