The Richard Day cattle have the teats and udders, body mass, 5 frame score, and live 17 years pretty regularly. They are not that heavily pigmented, but have been culled hard for years against eye problems. They are primarily line-bred Hazlett/Turner Ranch.
Ned Jr. was one of the breeders I meant when I said there are some breeders on this board that have some fine Line Ones.

It's important for different reasons depending on your location. In the northern climes, they need to grow a good long thick haircoat, and it's not as important that they slick off so much as it is in the south in the summer. In the south, they need to be able to quickly transition into a smooth, summer coat. Here in Oklahoma, they need to do both fairly well, as we occasionally see zero or a bit below, and we also pretty regularly exceed 100 in August. IMO, Victors are hard to beat when it comes to a slick summer coat.Watertondifter":3lils7z1 said:How importand is hair to all of you??
