TJ- since you breed LowLines, is there a different scale for them versus other cattle?

Red

A However, a fullblood bull on a full sized heifer, is a match made in heaven!!  And the calves are big enough to sell & make pretty good money, even in a traditional market system.   1/2 blood Lowlines will work for the commercial producer.  And if they want the calves to be a little bigger, they can use 1/2 & 3/4 Lowline bulls & get similar results (extreme calving ease) & slightly heavier weaning weights & frame sizes.   

And here's an example of a halfblood Lowline female  (fullblood Lowline sire x Reg. Angus dam) showing at Denver and, then, in pasture in her "working clothes" with her 3/4 blood heifer, who has won just about everything she's been shown in. The third pic is that baby heifer winning at the NILE in Oct.

Dori, here is a down sized pic of your 1/2 blood.  Am I correct that she's not  quite 2 years old in this pic, like maybe 20 months or so?   Judging from the pic, I am going to say that she's easily a 4 frame.

Romans 10:9-10... "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

Thanks!  Don't know what happened when I downsized it!  Yes, she was in her last show class at Denver and was just about 20 months and pregnant.  I'd say a 4 to 4.5 would fit just about right.

No, breed character can't really be used now a days at shows.  This is because all the breeds look the same.  How many breeds aren't black now? 2?  Herefords and Shorthorns..thats about it.  There isn't any focus on developing a breed to keep with traditional standards.  Now breeds are all going in the same general direction with phenotype.  I think that there is still alot of quality in cattle today, but there isn't nearly as much diversity between the breeds as there used to be. 
At a show, "No", but what about Oral Reasons in "Team Judging"?
