It weights around 90 kg. (60 to 90 kg). These carcasses are used to sell fresh meat and to make processed products in the meat industry. This carcass unlike the cow’s, is sold with the head, legs and skin.

It is displayed at the butcher’s as it comes out from the slaughterhouse but the offals are removed. The ratio between the meat and the whole animal determines its price. It is cut in two halves and then each half carcass is cut in two halves again. So 4 quarters are obtained.
