Really hard to tell in pictures.. I'd say in the 800-1000 area?

wild guess 1,010 lbs it's tough guessing them right in person (that's why they make scales) let alone from a photo

Yeah I'd say 900-1000. You have a trailer? got to the truck stop, weigh truck and trailer, load steers, do a reweigh and subtract divide by # of animals....

What are you going to be feeding them the next 6 weeks?
Eat one and selling the other 2 for freezer beef?
What are your customers expecting?
I would think you'd want to feed them another 90+ days, but to each their own..

I just weighed a trailer load of heifers that didn't look must smaller than them, and they avg. 796.
I would go for the 850-950 range also.

He must have weighed 1144 lbs in the picture
Since my guess was the closest and the only one over 1,000 lbs.... I win the prize?!?!
Guess you owe me... a package of 2 of his steaks and a pound of hamburger seems fair.
Where did you have him butchered? When should I come to pick them up?
