If you keep them past ~age 7 they will often either turn up open or turn up dead. That 400 lb swing up and down in body weight takes a toll. One reason why I am suspicious of reg. seedstock herds that unload all their cows before age 6.

This is her last calf for me, I don't like to see them that thin any time. She was a big disappointment and I was waiting for her to have a heifer. That way if the heifer gets that way I can say it was my fault, not hers. I will say that her steer in Iowa did a wonderful job fullfilling her expenses.
