Hard to tell for sure from the pictures, but my guess is he will weigh up real nice! Great looking bull calf.

711 lbs. kind of depends on what the dam weighs in order to compare, but he looks to be hovering around 700ish lbs. Nice calf

IF he truly is a/the 'beast' then he should weigh... 666 lbs.

6 m = 180 days x 3.25 lbs day = 585 lbs + birth weight 81 lbs = 666 lbs :tiphat:

Then if he doesn't weigh 666... no worries... otherwise you might have to shave him to be sure. :)

He sure looks like a tank. It would be easier to guess if we knew what the cow weighed.
I'll put my guess in at 745#
