Clipping a heifer. Need tips.
« on: August 06, 2014, 03:05:59 PM »
We've got a heifer we are about to show in an open show at our county fair as a yearling heifer. I've always had steers and can clip them decently, I was mostly curious before I jump into this, with her being a thick heifer is there anything I should avoid to keep her feminine? The judge for the show is more about the market aspect of everything and less of a showy type animal. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and she has amazing amounts of perfecr hair, so I have a lot to work with.

we wont clip as much muscle definition into our heifers, We like to keep them softer looking.

Loins a little tighter with less expression, same way back into the hips, and don't make them look massive boned when fitting, more "well rounded"
Don't think you know it all; be open to let others teach you.
