Butchering

Hey guys
Wondering if there are any butchers on here? We are going to be getting a steer butchered eventually so my question is, if we get 2 front quarters what is the best way to ask the butcher for cuts to getbthe very most out of it?

Ask the butcher for a list of the cuts available from the two front quarters. Then decide which cuts you like to cook with, and check those boxes.
Buying half a cow?

For everything you don't want, have it ground into ground beef, find out if you can get the internal organs or the fat, if you want those. A butcher's job if partially to help the client figure out what parts they want or don't want.

When we have gotten a quarter beef, we run out of hamburger well ahead of steaks. We love steak, but burger is more versatile.

We always have stew beef soup bones left over after everything else. I have to really focus on stewing beef meals. We run out of roasts first. We often do a roast at the start of the week instead of doing meat nightly makes after work dinner easy and yummy.
