Your animals have some of the nicest rumps/butts on them.

How is the heifer that was yours that you were hoping to keep after she had the injury to her leg?

Yes, most of them. Now have 17 heifers, four should be sold in a month and almost all will be kept for breeding.
For culling: bigger yellow polled, yellow with bigger horns, bigger red polled (Limo red), two red horned. Most other are certainly for breeding, 2-3 are still questionable.

All heifers are sired by the same Limousine bull, except black polled heifer, which is sired by our Angusx bull.
Dams: BBxdairy, Herefordxdairy, Limox, Charx, LimoxCharx, some have Angus, abit Salers,BB.

Thank you.
She's in the last photo. Doing really fine. Couldn't tell that she has something not normal with her rear leg. She walks fine, runs just like other heifers and she is very friendly.

Recent photos. Finally heifers went on fresh second grass. Should boost their growth abit.

Daughter of the cow which has calved at 15months age. Should make a great cow. Her full sister has calved this spring and has a very nice udder.

Image
Image This girl will be sold for slaughtering soon.
Image Heifer out of Herefordxdairy cow. The last her daughter, so probably will keep. Have only two daughters from that cow.

Younger-smaller heifers group: personally I think it looks better than elder heifers'.

Image White heifer is full sister to the heifer which has aborted recently. Will keep this one as replacement too.

Finally have weighed all heifers this weekend. One girl is already big enough for a bull so went to the cows herd.
Image 1200lbs.

We already knew that our one bull's calves grow slower than we'd like. It's very obvious now, when we've one accidental heifer from half sister-brother breeding. Her dam was 75%Angus, 12.5%Salers, 12.5%dairy 1st calver. Sire was 1/2Angus, 25%Limousine, 12.5%Charolais, 12.5%dairy homebred young bull. Heifer herself looks just like Angus, very friendly personality and easily putting fat on. Weighed her at 15months and 1day age- 1050lbs. She has beaten all other heifers with growth.

Other girls:
Image 14mo LimoxCharx heifer, 911lbs.
Image 17mo, 7/8Limousine, 1090lbs.
Image 17mo,950lbs. I really like this one, but will need to cull her. She has very nice body, but bad personality. When we closed her in the steel pen, she was very unhappy, walked around and tried to lift every part of the pen and it was quite a challenge to keep her still for a couple moments on the scales. No interest in people too.
