Beef Tallow

If we render 3,000 pounds of beef fat,(per hour) what can we expect as far as galons of tallow?

Basically what is the average amount of tallow we can get out of, lets say 1000 pounds of beef fat cubes,(rendered)

Hi - meat is 1/2 water.

Hi - meat is 1/2 water. After the rendering process you'll be left with 1/3 oil and 2/3 matter that usually get turned into MBM meat bone meal.

If you are processing just fat, you'll get more oil. I think .4 of the weight you are processing divided by 8 to give you gallons.
