That's so incredibly wonderful sounding. Althought, at 80lbs a half, those would be pretty little cows... calvehalves, perhaps?I think "split halves" might be code word for "equally distributed quarter" or eighth.And, man, am I'm jonesin' for an eighth of cow.("About The Meat", arguably the best use of <title> ever, from another "natural" beef farm)

Ah, the "split half" is a half that's been split. Tricky things, these semantics.I thought 80 pounds sounded a little puny for a cow, but what do I know? Where I grew up they only raised plants.

Presumably 80lbs usable meat; they say 'pick up at the butcher' so they've probably taken out all the bones, skin, guts, etc. first.
