Raising cattle for profit

Hi , I have 30 acres of good pasture , well fenced with three dams and automatic troths and a good bore with paper work saying it's good for cattle . I want to raise steers to pay for cost / keep the property well managed and keep grass / paddock under control . Can anyone explain what weigh the steers generally come in at and approx what weight to sell them at . Roughly I'm trying to understand how much I can make and what time it takes along with cost for each steer. Thanks
