Comparing Chest vs Walk-In Freezers For Small Farms: Operating Costs, Storage Space, & Convenience
Which is better for small livestock farm meat storage: chest freezers or walk-in freezers? I measured actual power consumption for our chest freezers and compare it to a walk-in freezer’s consumption, as well as reviewing other pros & cons: space efficiency, reliability, emergency power considerations, ease of use, etc.

Hey Pete, I’m thinking about getting a half a beef. Can I ask your opinion what size Chest Freezer do you think I would need for the Beef? 7 Cubic? 10 Cubic? or bigger? What the average amount of weight for a half a beef? Thanks.
