What’s the average of live weight to boneless meat on a hog? For example... if you get 90 lbs of boneless meat, what would the live weight be? I was thinking 30% for some reason.

mike , on a top hog or beef it'll run right at 50%  , if it is sure enough finished . same with a wild hog , if he is topped out .   now if he's waying 200 standing on a 300 # frame he won't yeald as much .

   couple a years ago i butchered a 805 # bar that made over 400 # of sausage and 15 gallons of lard  .


   and a wagon load of dog feed !

probably won't be on a wild hog unless he's good and fat .
