Can't help on weights, i never know what mine weigh ::) ;D  I just measure them round their chests with 5wks to go i would expect them to measure around 36-37inches and then to gain an inch per week upto butcher time, you may need to up your feed rate (5-6lbs)to achieve this and so long as they are free ranging they shouldn't put down too much fat to reach the magic 40inch ready for the butchers measure. (Sorry i only work in imperial measurements.. a lady of a certain age :eyelashes: )
