This heifer was born on March 20th last year. She had an 80 lb birth weight and is out of an older AI sire named MCC Trigger's Champion. Trigger's Champion was born in 1979 and goes back to several bulls that were considered legends of their time. I am excited to see how she develops over the coming months.
This heifer is sired by our primary herd bull, BB Uncle Tony, and is out of an 8 1/2 year old cow. She will have a bit more frame to her than some of our other heifers. She was 76 lbs at birth. This heifer and the 620 heifer are probably my favorite two heifers out of this group of heifers.
The heifer on the left is a 14 month old daughter of OK Buford, our current back-up bull. She was 74 lbs at birth. We tested her for tenderness genes with Igenity and she came back as a perfect 10 out of 10 for tenderness. The heifer on the right is a 13 month old daughter of BB Uncle Tony. She was 80 lbs at birth and is 75% Murray Grey x 25% Angus. Her mother is currently a 7 1/2 year old that is one of our best cows.
These two aren't heifers, but I thought that I would share them anyways. Both of these cows are 7 1/2 year olds that are 50% Murray Grey x 50% Angus. They are right around a frame score of 4.5 and weigh between 1400 and 1500 lbs, depending on the time of year. They weaned their first calves back in 2012 at 604 and 620 lbs.
This is the same cow pictured above on the left. She is raising a really nice bull calf this year and is the mother of the 624 heifer shown in an earlier photo.
