Default Hogs: Live weight v. dressed weight

Brethren,
I was told that the four hogs we're cooking for a benefit this weekend average 225-250 pounds live weight. Any idea what we can expect in weight after they are processed at the meat locker???
Thanks!

They're 70% for hanging weight. If you are further processing a general rule is 60-65% depending on how it's cut up.
