It was our first time out with heifers, so I may have expected too much too soon from our cattle. I am trying to find that happy medium with our girls so that we can be competitive. My oldest son's Maine-Anjou is a county scramble heifer, so I know we did not spend the amount of money others did who run the circuit. The heifer that won his class looked too much like a steer to me. Our Ag. Science teacher judges this circuit and wants ours to have a softer look, with more feminine features. My youngest son has the Red Brangus heifer and has the whole package, we bought her after the Majors last year where she was Reserve Breed Champion in Houston. I am not condemning the system, just new to the game and confused. I know in Texas to play with the big boys, it is going to cost you so we better stay with the small local jackpot shows. Next year we will be looking to add two new heifers so help us out and thanks for the feedback.
