In my neck of the woods the rule of thumb is one animal unit per acre. If I remember correctly an animal unit is defined as 700 lbs of live weight so an acre could support one 700 lb animal, two 350 lbs animals, or seven 100 lb animals, etc.

Of course as already stated pasture conditions will affect the holding capacity.
