I really like this heifer...I think she balances very well, has good bone substance, appears to be very thick and wide based and has a lot of rib dimension and depth of body...how is she bred?

Rockefeller,

Really powerful, great lines, deep flanked. Nice heifer  How old is she?  Do you by chance have a pic of her momma??  I've used Milsap and Inferno before but never Tonic would like to see momma to see if he might work on something I have.

Thanks!!

She is a very nice well balanced heifer.  (thumbsup) But really Warrior10 I think that is a big call.

Nice Heifer. Would like to see a shot of her front end tho. She looks to be very moderate, well balanced, good boned and the hair is never hurts.  ;)
Just hope she doesn't get too terminal. She should have a real nice set of EPD's too which is always an added bonus.

I have a couple Channing heifers that will be calving this spring that we are pretty excited for. We bred ours back to purple womanizer and about time.

I've seen Tonic in person down at mullinex's this past summer, and he looked good even at almost 10 years old. He will definatly not hurt structure size even tho he's mainly a calving ease bull. He was very powerful and wide based. His females tend to have very good longevity.

I'm glad to see this mating worked and will keep it in mind come breeding season.

This picture makes her look pretty clubby, she is still quite feminine.  She's got a real good set of numbers on her too.  Tonic daughters are great mothers & I plan to put a few more in my herd.  Below is a picture of her mother in her show days

Aussie I am a small town, county fair kid so most of the herefords I see are pretty weak and I am never impressed this one looks totally different. Haha but ya I am sure the big show guys do see better herefords but I don't that was a honest comment.  (lol)

This heifer looks great! Her momma looks even better imo. Looks like you know what you are doing.
