It should go by height, not by weight. No idea what her height should be, but one of my charts puts Jersey heifers at 14 months at a minimum of 575lbs with a 58in heart girth. My weight tape is out in the barn and that has Jersey weights on it too - I'll check when I'm out there this evening.

Basics needed to answer questions: age, weight, breed, sex. # affected vs # in group, feed type/amount, prior vaccinations, deworming, antibiotics, any recent changes....

More info = better answers.
