saxx theft, their side

Reviewer: the fat lady
“Just read this bad review and I want to tell our side of the story, because we all know there is two sides to a story. I also believe this gentleman wrote this review in the heat of the moment. This gentleman is right about his take home weight. After a few unpleasant talks with him, I showed proof that I wasn't lying about anything. This gentleman bought this meat through a craigslist ad. He believed he was buying from a farmer a home raised "modern angus" beef. What the farmer brought in was 6 Holstein Cows and half of one of those was his, and by the way was purchased at a local livestock auction barn, not personally raised. You see, the Colorado depart of agriculture has us processors keep track of all beef animals that come in to our shop. We have to have paper work from the farmer for every one that comes in here and than it gets documented. The brand inspectors come in and check what they bring to the animal to assure there is no cattle rustling going on. If you google anything about Holsteins they are the biggest boned animal which contributes to the loss of take home weight, especially if your putting a lot of your chuck roasts into burger. That being said, once I showed this customer above what he purchased, he went after the farmer, who dodged him for a bit. Eventually he gave the meat back to the farmer and got his money back. Just wish he would have been kind enough to update his complaint.”

“I purchase ½ of a beef at $2.60 a pound hanging weight or carcass weight.
The carcass ½ that I purchased was 351.5 lbs at a cost of $913.90 which I paid the rancher who raised it. He told me he has:

Do his meat processing and highly recommends them. I got online and read reviews on them and found most reviews to say they do not give customers all their product they are buying.
I paid Saxx $.70 a lb. for 351.5 lbs. processing and $35.00 for butchering. A Total of $280.70.
Now I have a total of $1193.90 in this beef.
I is common knowledge that a modern Angus Beef will yield around 60% of carcass weight for an average of edible meat. 351.5x.60=211.4 lbs
I should have gotten 211 lbs of finished product. I received 173 lbs. of finished product give or take. This is a yield of 49.3%, which would make more than ½ of the carcass going in the trash. I feel I was shorted 38.4 lbs. of meat at a minimum.
On my invoice it called for 150 lbs. of ground beef, I received 109 lbs. A difference of 41 lbs. I asked Saxx where the rest of my ground beef was and the said the person cutting the meat must have missed counted. If you add the missing 41 lbs into the total count the yield is at 60.9%, This would be correct in my opinion.
My wife and I use a lot of burger so I had them grind the Round Steaks, Sirloin Steaks, Brisket, Short Ribs, Flank Steak, all but (2) 2 to 3 lb. Chuck Roasts, all into burger.
The T bone and Rib Steaks are bone in which makes for a higher yield.
173+41=214 total finished product = $5.58 per lb.
The 41 lbs I am missing would be $228.78. That being said, this is for ½ of a beef. If they did this on the other ½ this would be $457.56.
The rancher told me he took 5 head of steers to Saxx on the 9th of December. If they skim $457.56 off of each one that is $2287.80.
The public need to know about Saxx Custom Cutting because most people probably dont know they are being robbed.
I have purchased many beef halves over the years and the have all averaged 60% or better. Is the meat missing or was it ever even there? I hope they are not lying about carcass weight. I dont think so because it was on my invoice at 150 lbs. not 109 lbs. of ground beef.
This makes my beef cost $6.90 a lb. rather than $5.58, big difference.
At this rate over the course of a year that is a large theft that is hard to detect and Saxx Custom Cutting is doing it.
I contacted Saxx and the fat lady got very nasty, saying bad things about the rancher and that my scales are wrong. I talked with the Adams County Sheriff and they know about the problem saying it would be a civil matter that is hard to prove and Saxx knows that. At best they feel in court I would get about half of the 41 lbs. back and it is probably not worth. That's if I could prove it to be true. This isn't Saxx first Rodeo nor their last. Look at the reviews”
