Hauled the old 15-16 year old butcher cow to the butcher this morning. I had been unable to feed much flesh onto her. I got her from an uncle expressly for the purpose of turning her into hamburger, as he didn't want to hassle with her. She would have gone an easy 1,200# in her prime, but in current condition she weighed 974# after a 50 minute haul to Chouteau. She was stove up in her hips.

I already know the hanging weight. See if you care to take a guess at her hanging percentage, and predict the final dressing percentage. She is 3/4 Hereford, 1/4 Limi.

Ok Greenwillow I'll bite!

Hanging weight 51%

Final dress weight 30%

Now for my prize, I like cheese, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles on my burger with a side of fries.

I took one similar a few months ago...so my guess is:

56% and a final dress of 36%.
