I recently bought a 60lb box of pork sides. It had some of the rib bones and the skin on. There was 6 sides or 3 pigs worth. The size of pigs can vary quite a bit as well so it is hard to say.

For bellies that I have bought at commercial-oriented supply stores, I have found that on average, skinless bellies tend to be 9-10 lbs, and skin-on 12-15 lbs. From a farm or butcher, that might be different.
