Here is a commercial heifer that we will AI to Lazy tv watchman next week. 17 months old, what do y'all see right/wrong with her?

Pretty nice heifer, guy could nit pick some little things but she looks like she has the chance to be profitable.

She looks fine, seems to have a good topline with a nice gentle slope from hips to pins, although it appears she could use more rump length. And I'm going to guess that she could probably use a bit more width between the pins as it appears her rear legs seem a tad too far behind her rather than placed more squarely under her.
She may even look like a different heifer, just by which way she is pointed or angled.
Nit picking...and just my opinion, but you asked.

OH....and she's open....appears to be good sized so, she should have been bred by now. :D

Thanks for the input. Son Of Butch I figured that her being open at 17 months would be pointed out, but it was by design. Her dam was a commercial cow that I bought bred and she calved in December 2014, we had a group of heifers we are going to AI so I just held her over a bit to get her into our calving season. Any comments or critiques are appreciated, please be specific.

I like her. Sorry but I can't be specific as to why. She's just nice.

She's a commercial heifer. Nothing drastic wrong so not much point in worrying about it. She's correct enough to crank out a calf and that's her job. :D

Just wanted to give an update on how this heifer has turned out. She had her first calf unassisted, raised a very nice heifer calf, she's held her condition well and is a sweetheart on disposition..
