Here's your one clue: I weigh 165 pounds. Good luck!

The winner will be the person whose guess comes closest to the weight of the cow. If there are multiple winners, we'll select one at random. The winner will receive a plastic cow trophy of nominal value. Entries will be accepted until noon Eastern on Wednesday, July 22nd. Thanks for playing!
