I'm not sure on the math with the calf skin size, but it seems... low.
I just skinned another forest reindeer calf, 2lbs fine winter skin*. 42lbs meat. In-game day earlier, bumped into a badger on my trap line check run and bust its knee (it might've been a badger adventurer?  :P) skinned it, got Fine Badger winter skin, and butchering yielded 8 lbs of meat. Which is something that has been "established as good representation of actual*
It'd seem the calf yield is low vs other fur bearers.
Not sure if bug, intentional or oversight?

*Elk calfs seem to yield 3lbs skin most of the time. which is in ratio to deer calves.

But both calves seem to yield roughly third of the skin size vs other creatures.. less so for badger vs deer calf where the discrepancy ratio is 1:5.25  :o

  so I suggest to 2x or 2.5x the hide received from skinning calves

Looks like the deer calf hide was actually 1.16lbs, given cleaning it only asked for 0.58lbs of water

The calf/cub skin sizes depend on the age and thus the size of the calf. It's not a fixed value.
