Don’t know, I have no idea what the show folks look for or why. I don’t see much functionality in that calf, looks misshapen or standing at a bad angle or both. My opinion showing cattle bred for the pasture or steers from mainstream breeds or crosses is fine but breeding cattle specifically for the show ring is problematic on several levels.What’s the deal with the top line though? How is that even remotely functional?
She's not broke to lead, is fighting the halter. Add to the fact that she has a weak topline to begin with, and that's the look you end up with. I'm guessing she is clubby bred based on hair coat and bone. Her topline may look better in person, or on the move, but she is way too tight gutted to be really competitive.What’s the deal with the top line though? How is that even remotely functional?
That's my kind of animal, I'd like her in my paddock.One of my commercials.
Half Angus quarter Hereford and Brahman.
Two categories 1/2 more or less Brahman.
That’s how it should be done.That's my kind of animal, I'd like her in my paddock.
Show cattle in Australia are judged around fertility and longevity, sometimes they come in straight from paddock and just given a wash, no clipping, can win a show and next day sent back out to the paddock.
