Hows this Baldy Progressing , better or worse ???
« on: August 12, 2013, 08:25:54 PM »
This is a reg. half blood Simmy x Angus heifer calf that I really liked as a calf but now I'm wondering. She's out of a Meyer 734 daughter that came from Akers and an Optimus Prime son. My biggest question is that she's not quite as stout as I like them ? Or am I being to harsh on her ? From the breeding aspect I think she's got the pedigree and the looks , just would like some more bone ?

What about a picture from the rear?
I think her bone is adequate. I think she might need some more muscle and natural thickness. Also to be nit picky, she pinches in a little behind the shoulder.
I like her length, depth of body, and hind rib shape.

I'll have to snap a rear picture of her tom. I appreciate the observations. Here's a picture of her dam whom I've had mixed feelings on since the day I brought her home !

I like that cow-Id use a Maine x like Breathe Easy or Shorthorn x like young Money JMO for a little structure and butt,but there are a ton of good Simms too,guess I just like hybrid vigor lol.: It may be the picture but the hiefer looks a little funky in her knees-how does she move around? O0

Heifer looks good to me.  Might not be the killer show heifer that you were hoping for, but looks to have the confirmation for a good, productive female.

Thanks to both. Ya I think she has some good breeding value but I guess were always striving for more !!! Mark yes that cow needs to bred to something with some more tail end !
