Dude, Where's her cannon bone? I'm all for easy-keepin' stuff, but, dang, She might be too small. She's the extreme opposite of raw-boned and high-maintenance, that's for sure. Keep us posted as she develops. Hope I'm proven wrong.  Respectfully, yet without apology, Gary Bob.

Well is is all of a few days old. Pictured is mother who has developed into a super two yr. old. Most of the cows I have are 5 to 6 frame score. Weighing anywhere from 1200 to 1800#'s. I am not worried about her. She is just getting started. No apologies needed "bob".

That just reminded me of the pictures you see from the 50 where they have the cows in straw up to their bellies., to accentuate the fact that they have no legs.  I wouldn't worry that this calf is quite at that point...

Thanks for the post Genes. I like the fact my cows throw them small and they grow like weeds. Last years calves weaned at 6 months weight between 750 and 815#'s. At just about a year steers were 52" and 1285 or so. I grain year round with free choice hay. To date, we haven't raised any stump's.  ;)There is quiet a bit of straw because the temps have been quiet drastic.My farm is in the same neighborhood as Red's.

Remember OH B & I come from grain country. Lots of good feedstuffs & hay available. We do probably raise a different type of cattle than Gary or some others. Also need to meet market demands. Right now that little girl is what the market out here is looking for.
My big red Maines don't always produce what the market wants for show cattle but I feel in the long run, we're ahead w/ good functional cows that can raise calves.

That's a really nice heifer. I would be proud of her. By the way , I saw one of the first Primo calves today and she was nice.

Thanks

Me and a friend of mine split a semen interest in Primo and he used him pretty heavy in his herd this past year. The calf is a heifer out of a Eskimo Joe/ Missy Ruth first calf heifer ( BW 82 ). If you've ever seen the King Kong calves she is colored kind of like those. The mostly white frosty colored with a little red mixed in here and there. She is only a week or so old but I think she has a good bit of promise.

Would love to see a picture when and if you get a chance. I will see flush mates to my eggs this spring. I am kind of anxious. So, you had no problems using him on a heifer. That sounds great.

If I get a pic of the heifer , I'll forward it. I'm not going to say he is a heifer bull but this one was born unassisted. The Eskimo Joe daughter is what I would call moderate in frame and had no problems.
