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?
