Butchered one myself back around Thanksgiving. She had a bad hip and I didnt want to put her on a truck. trimmings all got used to mix with our venison... Its quite the job to butcher something that big by yourself. took me a couple hrs I believe.

Usually when butchering a cow you can figure about 30-35% of live weight on trimmings.
A fat beef will a do a little better if you take only boneless cuts and trimmings. ( bone will add to total take home weight)

Typical hanging weight will yield 50 to 60 percent of live on a cow.
A fat will do 60 to 65 hanging weight.

my guess if she weighed 1540 live weight she will get you right over 500 to 540 lbs depending on how much trimming you do.

Only had the caption as a joke because every so often something like that happens where someone shoots someone's livestock thinking it was a deer...

Hiding our humane dispatches doesn't keep the Antis from showing their own gruesome ones. In this 1 sided story, who will the public believe, then?
