Cows for domestic violence



Hi all!

We’ve decided to go ahead and get a couple of cows due to popular demand :-D  We're probably only going to get 2 for our first year so make sure you get in contact with me fast.  Two cows means 8 people can purchase.  Through talking to cattlemen and looking at typical prices for beef, we are offering beef at $10 per pound (plus processing fee) with 30% of that purchase being tax deductible.  This part of the purchase is used to support Flip Flop Ranch’s efforts to lower domestic violence and build stronger relationships. If you purchase a ¼ side of beef (about 100 pounds), it will cost (about$1000 and $300 of that purchase price can be taken off your taxes.  So this actually drops the price down to $7 per pound after the tax deduction.  This is the average price you’d pay for beef at Costco or a similar store, but now you are supporting a good cause, you can see your cow as it grows, come visit it and know that it has been raised happily and healthily.  Our cows will also be grass fed.  Although grass fed is healthier, some people prefer the taste of a grain finished cow.  Please specify if you want this.

A deposit (nonrefundable) of $200 will reserve your quarter of a cow.  Remember that a ¼ of beef can easily be split between two people, although we ask that you decide between yourselves which cuts you would prefer.  A ¼ beef will take up about 6 cubit feet of freezer space.

Look forward to hearing from you!
