They both look great. I really like the red heifer though.

Me too. First couple of shows, the black beat the red for calf champion. Finally, a judge got it right & the red took calf Champion!!! the red is a Sept. She doesn't have quite the pretty neck as the black, but she is a powerhouse!

Judging only from the photos the red is a lot deeper sided and broody looking than the black.

Dislike how the showring demands cattle clipped like poodles.

Good on you for your wins!

I like the red heifer. I realize that a clean neck is a show winner but personally I like mass, muscle and depth.

To me the red heifer has more length. I also like her depth and muscling. The black heifer is more feminine and refined IMO. Both nice heifers

I was going to say the red one looks good enough to be angus... just to stir the pot.
But as you can see, my politeness has gotten the better of me. :)
