Here's a couple of Progress steers. They've started on grain and will go to slaughter in 60 days.

Looks like the poll steer will be ready before the 60 days are over and the horned one might not quite be there after 60 days. Wonder what the horned guys would say after seeing these two? ;-) :lol:

Heifers look very usefull, interesting that the H119 heifer has so much brisket with very little cover over the top.

You do know that the extra white makes the worthless? ;-)

OLF,

Thanks for posting the progress stock, I used him on a couple of heifers this year, with luck I'll have one on the ground next spring. I like the looks of the polled steer, but would like to get someone with a sharper eye to critique him on both the positives and negatives.... critiquers feel free to PM me if needed.

BTW, nice looking, deep, 5 month old bull calf. I'm like you, just raised up a (now) yearling bull and some days he looks pretty good some days I wonder if I kept the right weanling bull.... but you can only cut them once and glue doesn't work. :D

I agree on the steers. Unfortunately, we are so limited on slaughter houses that I book in April for September and October kill dates, so when their date comes, they have to go.

The H119 heifer has always looked like that. Great length and hind quarter, but that's about it. She did scan well for REA and IMF, so I'll try to match her with a complimentary bull and see how we do.

I know the white ones are worthless, that's why they're still here, no one will buy 'em. At least they're a little darker than a couple years ago. Light red and white and I can't give them away. :?

Is the .15 and .24 in inches?

IMF scores are very good

The Rib Fat is in inches.

Thanks bigbull. The steers look good, but we'll get some more meat and plenty of fat on them before they go in.

Alan, good luck with your Progress calves, I've been very pleased with mine. Don't worry if they don't look like much at first, they start to bloom around 4 or 5 months.
