What will the beef to fat content be in my hamburger?

This will largely depend on the amount of fat on your carcass. We typically try to achieve an 80-20 mix. The more steaks and roasts that are cut, the less large portions of lean to go to your ground beef. If your beef is fatter, then your ground beef will tend to be fatter also.
