Anyone else have experience with Angus sire Weigh Up? I know that others here (knowledgeable folk) have said that feet quality is 15% inheritable. We have a 28 mo with a front hoof that is looking pincer-like. Weigh Up is the sire. Dam and her non-Weigh-Up sired sibs have decent feet.
Anyone else noticed this with a Weigh Up offspring?

Pasture is muddy; think foot conformation may improve?

Thanks

Post the pedigree and or registration number of the offender and maybe something in the pedigree will tell us something.

Here he is, Plattemere Weigh-Up: http://www.selectsiresbeef.com/index.ph ... ge?bid=214

Not trying to bash him; I think he's been used a lot and generally well-liked. I'm just puzzled at the feet on this 2yo. Dam is going on 7 and has better feet.

I've got a heifer out of him from a group of AI bred cows I purchased and plan to use him myself this year on a group of commercial cows. Her feet look just fine. No issues at 19 months

Been using him a few years on our commercial cows. Have some coming 4 year olds out of him and to date no real problems out if any of them.
