Tough to say, but he's big. We started weighing pigs at our lease and I was shocked at how much less they weighed than we guessed. We shot a really big pig and the weight we guessed was 49 pounds heavier than actual weight.

The pictures below is a pig we thought would weigh 250-275, but he only weighed 210. My buddy standing beside him is 6' 1" and 220. I think people tend to over estimate weight based picked up dead pigs. Dead weight always feels heavier than it actually does.

Big enough to destroy your feeder, call his buddies and eat all your corn.

if you put them on the ground it's easy to estimate their weight with a fairly accurate result.

You need to use the "Heart girth" and that is measured using a string or fabric measuring tape. Put it directly behind the front legs, warp it around tight and read directly behind the shoulders.

pig weight = 10.1709 x Heart girth (inches) minus 205.7492. This should get you to +/- 15 lbs.



There are other formulas out there using length too, but I've found this one to be pretty quick and easy to do, especially with smartphones and excel handy (if you keep a log)
