Why does this heifer have such a noticeable drop in her back line ? I have seen cows that have a slope to the tail, but not such an abrupt drop. I sold her because of her "Chicken Little" the sky is falling reaction to changes in routine. But the backline was also a part of the decision to sell her.

She roaches up a little in the loin. I don't mind a slight slope from hooks to pins -- way better than sloping from pins to hooks. Good heart girth. Maybe could stand to be deeper in the flank. Prone to panic attacks is enough reason to sell.

She looks to be in very good condition, fat deposits around those areas help to accentuate it. Did she go in calf? She has the look of one that will not breed to me. Did she bring good money?
