They appear to be small. I really like the hind leg on the #6 heifer.
Hard for me to judge. My heifers are nursing a calf at 2 years old.

Agree with Jeanne. What breed & how much do they weigh? My almost yearlings look about the same size.

I think the proportion may be off in the pics, the forelegs and heads don't necessarily look small, but I like the first one best.

Daddy is registered angus. #47 momma is limousine. #6 momma is a Salers Angus. They weigh about 950+. Pics do make them look a little smaller than they actually are.

Are they actually 2 years old? Are they bred?

At two they better be producing or any day. You have better than 1800 dollars in inputs without a penny return.
You have upkept the dam at a buck fifty a day for two years without a penny paid back. You have 525 days of inputs in the heifers since weaning.
At today’s prices that is mighty expensive F-1’s.

That's good. They will be calving around 26 months old.

They look like they could make some decent females. Hopefully no problems calving and they breed back. From the pictures I’d take #6 over #47. Better top looks a bit stouter and more correct rear leg.
