Where is the cut made to divide a side of beef into two quarters?

Using the diagram as a guide, cut the side into two "quarters" with the meat saw by cutting at a right angle to the backbone between the twelfth and thirteenth ribs. This results in a forequarter (the front end of the animal) and a hindquarter. The hindquarter can be temporarily set aside to allow room to cut up the forequarter.
