I have a few questions.  I am trying to develop some crude budgets for the
direct sale of beef to consumers.  I am trying to develop a demonstration
of the potential profit margin available when a producer sells "freezer
beef" to a consumer.  I know some of you have developed this type of
market.  I need a good estimate for the following.

        1) cost of slaughter and processing (cutting and wrapping).
        2) average price received per pound when beef is sold to customer (on a
side or whole       carcass basis).
        3) average slaughter weight

Thanks,

John
