Posted on April 29, 2015 by hchamber

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce Big BEEF Raffle is sticking around at Henderson State Bank for another week, so make your way over there to purchase your tickets and one of two chances to win a quarter of beef.

With all of this talk about a quarter of beef, you may be wondering what type of meat do you get out of a quarter of beef? This mostly depends on the cutting order you make. For example, as a general rule of thumb, you can anticipate 50 pounds of ground beef. Some of this ground beef can be formed into patties 1/4 pound and 1/3 pound patties according to your liking. In addition you can anticipate 28 steaks, this number can fluctuate based on the size of the animal and the thickness you wish to have your steaks cut. Finally you can expect about 9 roasts from the quarter as well rounding out enough meat to fill your freezer for the winter.

Tickets for the Big BEEF Raffle will be sold throughout the summer as a fund-raiser for the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds will benefit community events organized by the Henderson Chamber. One of those events is the Henderson Farmers Market where two lucky people will win a quarter of beef August 25, so hurry to Henderson State Bank to buy your raffle ticket today.
