She is showing her in commercial, breeding, & open beef. She is a 12 month old brangus Maine cross.

Hard to tell from the small photo size but looks like it has been fed well. Hope she does real good with it.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

She looks good in the photo, but hard to tell very much without seeing how she moves.
Best of luck!

Really nice calf. She is very deep. I like that. Judge might say her top line is weak, but I like her.

She is a good looking heifer. I'm with bigfoot, straighter top would be nice. Get you a nice leveled topped, deep chested bull for her when it comes breeding time.

She looks too much like a steer. Maybe its the brangus? Other wise she does look good, and is well conditioned.

I can see the Brangus aspects of her and the Maine too. I like the depth of her and how she carries it from brisket to flank, no dipping off. She does have that Brangus wastey neck line, which carries into her brisket, making her appear tight in her heart girth. She's a very tight compact type female, not super feminine. A judge might comment she's weak topped, or has a high tail head. In the pictures her head is held at a perfect height, just need to get that back up. She has a very nice profile, good spring of rib, and nice flex in those pasturns. I'm thinking with the flex in those pasturns she moves out well. My only other problem with her is she doesn't have enough neck extension for me.

I hope she does well with her! Best of Luck!!

The truth will set you free, but first it will tick you off.

Looks nice but that neck could hurt bring you down fast. Best to get a sweat collar on it. I can also see a sway back and a naval on a heifer. She can use the show stick's hook and tug on the naval a few hard times to make her draw up that back. She can also use the hook to scratch the tail head, adding to the illusion of a straighter spine. Besides the neck and back, she looks like a nice cross! Good luck in your show!
