Here is some terms, not really what you are wanting... in terms of definitions.

This isn't the list I was looking for- or wanting to find... but it will work.. I have a much better one at home (parents), that I will get over new year's weekend to post...

In addition to Knabe's list, some other terms I frequently hear are: Breaks behind the shoulders and tight through the heart girth. I'm trying to think of others!   ???


ADDED: I have also heard fat cattle being called toady.  (lol)

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cattle and that's pretty much the same thing as far as I'm concerned!

I started looking up some of these terms. They might not be exactly what is meant by the cattle industry.

Terminology & lingo is a part of every business, every organization, every community...regardless of what you do, make, raise or sell. If you want to be effective in your communication with others, it's important to know & understand that terminolog, and that includes fad slang that might be open to some level of interpretation. It's also important to use words and phrases that DESCRIBE what you mean rather than throwing out vague terms you heard somewhere & think sounds cool. I'm not sure how or when "soggy" became a part of our lingo, but it's pretty descriptive & it's widely used. We prob didn't really need that word to describe cattle back in the 80s because they just weren't!

If you have the opportunity, I suggest taking a look at beef cattle judging or evaluation clinics, workshops or classes, especially if you're in school or in college. You'll learn the terms and phrases you need to compare and describe cattle, and you'll get better at evaluation and selection. I was lucky to get recruited to judge on a college team by one of the best livestock evaluators in the country, and I really enjoyed it. I still have to keep up, because trends and terms are constantly changing, but not in terms of definitions or meaning. I get to describe cattle almost every day now, and you have to learn to be accurate in what you see and effective in describing it.
