A typical slaughter weight is between 250-300 pounds. A 250lb pig will yield on average about 180 lbs of hanging weight. If you just take the prime cuts you will get about 120lbs of meat in the freezer. If you take the whole pig home - nose to tail - you will get about 160lbs of meat in the freezer.

My take......this is simply a general answer.....pigs come in all sizes and weights. Best to call the grower and inquire how much meat you will be getting, as they have it all weighed out and packed.
You are well stocked, for sure. It was great you had that much space in your freezer(s)
