Here I go again sticking my chin out, but I like to see cattle from other prespectives. So feel free to respond, yes she's from a show and sale, she is standing slightly down hill and it's real tough to get her to stand correct while tied to a tree and me taking pics. So lets have those "she's post legged comments" :D

Thanks for your thoughts,
Alan

Just turn her loose and take a picture of her standing out on pasture.

Just had since sunday, she came from high desert of N. Cal and as you can see in a lot being trucked feed for the last 2 months... not going to let her have that grass yet. She in a stall weaning of feed and onto local hay....and hoping to avoid the runs or snot nose.

Thanks,
Alan

I like her Alan.
She has got a nice length on her, good thickness, I really like the muscle she has on her hindquarters. Nice deep red color.

These photos tell a story. The first one is the graph on the breeder's web site. The second one is newer and on the AHA web site. Regardless Alan, I like your taste in Herefords.

Just by looking at the pictures I thought she might become a really big cow. Looking at the YW I'm wondering just how big she is gonna get? I bet she raises some dandy calves.

You are welcome KNERSIE. Besides what you posted about calving ease, I also found the weakening milk illustrative.

Phenotype-wise, she looks much like a number of cows/heifers I have in my pasture. So I have the same criticisms that I'd have for them. I'd like to see more volume and depth of body, thus a little less of the leggy/growthy look, a little straighter topline, a little more natural thickness throughout in both muscle and flesh. But she's a very good heifer overall and a good place to start from.

The only other worry I see is I'd like to see more udder development at that age, but that could still come.

She's probably going to be bigger than ideal.

Nice heifer Alan. I like her

What are your plans for her. ( Bull selection , ect)

Thanks, she is just going into the herd, and start working her way down the cull list (hopfully over the years). Bull wise, I have put much serious thought into it, but Progress seems to comes to mind the most... I wonder what would happen if I said Revolution... :? Just getting things set up and ready to AI the first part of June.
