Here's a commercial Angus heifer for you to critique. She's got a little something else in her, possibly Limo, but it is a long ways back. Her grand dam was a horned black cow, her mama is Angus sired and she is also Angus sired. Don't ask any questions on breeding, I only know about her mama's sire.

She is fairly small framed, and that almost got her culled, but I like the way she looks, so we are going to give her a chance. Also, not the greatest performance, acceptable, but not great. So, we will see. She is bred back to Red Angus.

How old is she weighing 924? I like her. She's nice and fat, I assume on just grass based on other posts about your operation. She has a lot of length. Hopefully her babies will out-perform her and she'll earn her keep.

About 17 - 18 months. She gained pretty good over the summer, they all did.

She would have seen about 5 lbs of barley/day over the winter, which was a really cold one, even for up here. Just enough to keep them gaining about 1-1.5 lbs/day. The rest is just grass and mama's milk.

She is out of a pretty good cow family, so I have hopes for her.
