In weight (in this case 800#), Average daily gain (dependant on nutrition, genetics, condition, environment, implant strategy, etc.), and out weight (dependant on type of marketing system, economic conditions, and mature frame size of the cattle.<p>As you can see, there is a lot that influences the DOF of a particular pen. If you can guess the out weight you will need to acheive to finish your cattle and an approximate average daily gain, you can predict DOF by:<p>DOF= (Out Weight - In Weight)/Average Daily Gain
