I had a cow that didn't look all that much better than her, and she was the mother/grandma of all my best cows,.. they had the best udders, hooves, attitudes and all looked much better than her and the daughters of much better looking cows. Some traits skip a generation it seems.

I don't know what all was in her woodpile, but she sure made me some real good cows. Hard to say if I'd want to have other cows that just LOOKED like her, she was unique in character as well.

perhaps not the build I like as an ideal, but she sure raised a big heifer anyhow.

Here was another pic I was waffling about.. I like this one too, and perhaps it would have given better competition.

Here is one I could have entered, but probably wouldn't have gotten any votes. What I like about it, that's her first calf at 4 months old.

Thought about sending this one in but figured it would be DQ'd since there's two pair.

For me, voting for number six was given as they are brindles in colour. Many good looking pairs here, number 2 is my second chice. :2cents:

I'll concede to another good New Zealand cow #4 and a great photo too! Congrats, you are way out in front and it is already 14th Dec down under.
I photographed #2 again this morning, not doing too bad for a 12 year old rearing her eleventh calf, a heifer this year.
Image
She was shown as a young cow with current calf at foot, and the bull calf in question won a few calf classes in his own right. Went to our NZ National sale as a newly weaned 10 month old and never got a bid! Brought him home and later sold him to another stud, where he is still producing the goods! He weighed 404 kgs at 218 days, gain of 1.63kgs/day on grass and milk alone and weaned at 434kgs at 243 days. No hard feed in this boy, even when he went to shows he only ate a bit of chopped lucerne and hay.

This is another of her calves at 16 months following in Mums footsteps

Those are some great pics. I have to admit, I did not take #2, but I would be very happy to have that pair in our pasture.
Waihou, that is a great cow and it looks like she has raised phenomenal calves for you. It looks like she still has years in front of her.
