How many cows are used for one Sefer Torah?

As much as it sounds like a joke, it is a real question.

A couple of friends were curious about how many cows are used for one Sefer Torah.

So a couple of points here:
1. What is the average size for a Sefer Torah? (I know the layout is either 245 or 248 amudim or 62-63 yeriot)
2. Now, how many yeriot does one get from 1 single cow?
3. Based on number 2 how many cows do we use for a Sefer Torah?

Thank you everyone for your help as always!
