► COOLER INFO

THIS IS IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Coolers must have your name on them. (This does not mean on a piece of tape or a hand written note.)
Coolers must be hard-sided. (We have chased down our fair share of Styrofoam cooler lids.)
Coolers must have lids. (Rain is not the friend of frozen meat.)

We have anywhere from 20-50 coolers on a given pickup day.  
If your name is on a piece of tape or paper and it rains for 2 days after you drop off your cooler(s), it consumes 
an amazing amount of time for us to figure out whose cooler does not have a name on it.
Some folks use the equivalent of a luggage tag on their coolers if they are borrowing them.  That is fine because it is permanently attached to the cooler and not ruined by the rain.

$5 is what it will cost you, per cooler, if:
1) your cooler does not have a name that we can quickly find when we are sorting meat
2) your cooler is not hard-sided
3) your cooler does not have a lid

This is non-negotiable.  

These cooler requirements ensure time is not wasted and meat is properly delivered.

COOLER SIZES

Ladies: 
Disclaimer: I think I am allowed to specifically address ladies because Eileen told me "You need to think like a woman.  Your chart is confusing for ladies, we want to know how big the cooler needs to be, not figure out how many quarts it will hold"

Basic cooler size for a big cow (800 pounds):
These are the measurements for the outside of a typical cooler.  The numbers are measured in inches.

Large cow800 lbs 
 Order QtyLength x Width x Height  in inches
 1/1625 x 14 x 14 
 1/835 x 17 x 16
 1/42 of the 1/8th size or 4 of the 1/16th size
 1/24 of the 1/8th size or 8 of the 1/16th size
 Whole8 of the 1/8th size or 16 of the 1/16th size

For anyone that would like to calculate the Quarts:
These are estimates, but you should have plenty of space with these numbers.
Coolers are usually measured in Quarts.  Once you get the final cow weight for your order, use the numbers closest to your cow.

For example: 
If you order a 1/16 and it is a SMALL cow, you will need a cooler that holds at least 35 Quarts.
If you order a 1/16 and it is a LARGE cow, you will need a cooler that holds at least 51 Quarts.

Here are three scenarios: Small Cow (550 lbs) , Medium Cow (650 lbs) , Large Cow (800 lbs):
