Reading blackcowz's developing heifers post made me think of this. I know there is a world of difference when it comes to show cattle and breeding cattle. A while back, a PB Angus breeder told me he would never ever buy a show heifer to put back in the herd. I asked why, and he said he bought a couple a few years back and the heifers never got bred (that was his only explanation). Some posts on here have the same conclusion. Would you all ever buy a heifer that was shown? And if no, why not?
