We have had a couple of shows this new show season so far and both judges have been placing heifers that have obvious structure problems in the top of the classes. There was this one heifer last weekend that moves so bad on her back legs that I amazed she can get around yet she keeps taking a 2nd place over heifers that are sound on their feet both times. The judge even commented on how she has problems with her rear legs becasue he could not pretend that it didn't have a major problem it is very obvious. To me heifers should be sound and if they are not they should NEVER place over heifers that are sound. They are breeding animals and one day they will be in a pasture being a cow. I hope this is not a new trend. Anyone else having this problem where you show?
