supposedly a clean fronted female is more fertile. plus the brisket area is one of the areas they store excess fat. a lot of barren cows will have excess fat stored up front (and other places). also overconditioning of show animals can lead to fertility problems.

It means very little excess skin from the chin to the brisket.. and no "meat" at the brisket. If you'll check out some of the club calf sites, you'll get a better idea.

Is that also called a " DEWLAP"?

Not to be confused with a "dunlap" as in a belly dun lapped over a belt.
