Like everyone else, I appreciate the fleshing ability, the depth and capacity of the second brood cow.
However, I judge a cow on what she produces; a cow must be able to breed as good as herself or better (hopefully better). The first cow with the heifer calf, have produced an outstanding daughter. The second cow with the bull calf has, IMO produced an average bull calf.
Based on the evidence that I provided all of you I agree. However, the picture does not do the bull calf justice. The calf has improved tremendously in the past 30 days. He went from a fairly average bull just one month ago, I saw him Monday and he is really starting to "pop". He has always had above avg thickness and muscle expression but now he is starting to look more like a bull.
The heifer calf is really good. I wish she was alittle deeper bodied. She should weigh about 600# right now (she is 210 days old). The bull is a week younger and probably 50# heavier.
