Default lbs of meat in a hog

My question is. How much meat in pounds can be expected from a hog? If a hog is 200 pounds then how much meat can be expected or mabye it is easier to ask how much weight will be thrown out, like skin, bones, head, innerds and such.

As I posted the other day, I got my first pig an I am suppose to pick it up on friday. i am kinda wondering how much meat I can expect to pickup.

thanks

You loose 30% on butchering and if you debone, another 10%. Depends if you leave the head and skin on for roasting whole. The only thing you should loose on a pig, is the squeal!

it really depends on , if you do it yourself or someone else.if you have a butcher do it; then you get about 50%
they tend to get the main meat and throw out the hard stuff.
me I will get about 65%; thats allboned out for sasuage.if you keep all the rib bones and ham bones, then you get maybe70%.the bones are a lot of the weight.

Climber, do y'all keep the skin to make rinds? Man, we love the fresh pork rinds!
We also save the hocks tocook in the Greens.

Our hogs don't make that much meat.200lb hog would go something like this...

200
-45lbs(head&hide)
-70lbs(guts,rib cage,backbone)
-10lbs(legs&Hambone)
total 120lbs.
Meat?
Hams 20lbs each
shoulders 15lbs each
Backstraps&tenderloins 10lbs
Deboned- another 15-20 lbs.
Grand total 65lbs of meat after processing.

Let me know how close I am.Hogs are mostly head&guts.If you go rebel hogs route you may wind up with 210lbs of meat....Alot of people do just as he says.I wasn't raised up learning how to make some of the things he can.Not to say I'm wasting meat.I am wasting guts,and a head though.[8D]I like to shoot them in the head or neck anyways.Good luck!

rebel ; on my wild hogs , I don't save the skin and hocks.I skin and debone the whole thingfor sausage.

if it is a tame or pen raised hog ; then I schald and scrap,save the skin for cracklins and cook off the lard.the head goes into headcheese.usually we have the hams cured and smoked. the chitterlins are saved and cleaned for the sausage casings .that way we can save the hocks for the dry beans.on those we save it all.

as daddy always said " we save everything except the squeel , and we would save that if we could catch it"
