Rat tailed?

Rat-tailed would be a descriptor, kinda like describing color or markings. It's a genetic condition that occurs in heterozygous black cattle with the dilution gene originating from at least one Simmental parent. There are other breeds that offer the dilution gene for sure--Charolais, for example--but i'm not aware of other breeds that carry the gene that causes rat-tail. The cattle are a smoky color, and usually have short, curly hair covering the body and very short hair on the tail with little to no switch.

I've been told its important to have a "sound" steer. I kind of understand what it means but how is it defined?

sound is about as accurate of a description as me saying your animal is pretty...

it can mean 100 different things.

structurally sound, sound moving, sound skeleton, sound muscled, sound traveleing..

Usually indicates good structured.

Those a Soundness is a complete description of structure.  Its not subjective nor can you have ' partial' soundness. Its an all or none deal.   Im not familiar with muscle  in terms of soundness.  Think bones and ligaments.
You can follow the leader or you can be a breeder. Its your choice.

I don't know if this word has been addressed or not, but my breeder said my heifer was "a real cool heifer" when I went to pick her out, but I'm just not sure what that term means.  ??? Help, please? ;D

"a real cool heifer" means she has the style, but needs a good 6 inches of hair put on her via cooler and wash rack.

calling a heifer 'real cool' is extremely subjective. This applies to lots of different people in many ways. I call a real cool heifer one that has the look and build to really catch your eye. nice neck, smooth shouldered and big bodied. I think heifers that are well balanced, stylish and soft made can fit in to most people definition of cool. this term is more slang than anything and a great descriptor to lead into how you could break one down. we all think different things are cool, and the same goes with calling one that.

This is what we use here at RHD for official spelling, grammar and punctuation on a lot of standard terms. It's not necessarily your clubby terms but it is our official style guide:

A "hot" ration is a feedstuff that has a high level of energy...that would be describing a complete ration that you would expect cattle to perform well on, but it could also describe a ration that might present some problems in terms of digestive issues, feet development, cattle being excessively fat, etc.

CIDR is a trademarked commercial product name that refers to an vaginal progesterone-releasing insert. Both of these terms are industry terms, but neither would be in reference to describing cattle which is kinda what this topic is more about.

If you can get into some livestock judging( Ag teacher/ Agr. Ext. County agent can direct you)
  that will help on you terminology.
 Break in the chine. Right behind the shoulder blades - Chine. This is a fault on all species of show animals. It is a weakness in the muscles behind these blades.
 Twist - from the butthole to the bottom where the hind legs connect. The longer that muscle is the better. I.E depth of twist
