Save money on food with a quarter-cow?

Hey yall! First time poster here. Woo Hoo!

I read somewhere recently about saving money by buying a quarter-cow all at once and putting it in the freezer. This seems like a good idea to me. However, there are a few questions:

First, I need a freezer. How big does it need to be? Will a regular stand-up freezer be big enough for a quarter-cow?

Second, how much beef is in a quarter-cow? 100 lbs? 200 lbs?

I read the cost is about $1.25 per pound. Is that still true?

Finally, where can I get one in the Raleigh, NC area? Recommendations anyone?

What else do I need to know?
