Editor: My best advice would be to talk to the farmer or butcher (or both!) who are providing the beef. They will be able to tell you the amount of meat you'll be getting and also make sure you'll be getting the kinds of cuts you want.
Readers, have you ever purchased an entire side or quarter of beef? What advice do you have for which to buy or requesting specific cuts?
