I haven't been on here for a long time. I enjoyed the site with all the discussions and pictures.
This is a Shorthorn bred heifer sired by an Argentinian bull out of a Saskvalley Bonanza cow.

What a heifer!
Now that I have had time to really analyse the picture:
This is the antithesis of the 'goose-necked' type the show judges like!
Like:
Depth of body, especially the flank area
Brisket area folds and and shape indicate she should be 'easy fleshing'
Concerns:
Seems to have a short neck, which I associate with lowered fertility
Conclusion:
If she rebreeds easily after her first calf she will be a winner!

This is all JMO after a looking at a single picture!
