My thought .... to bad it’s not a steer. Looks like lots of meat on that rump!

She is a nice, muscular female with a wide base. My biggest concern would be a lack of depth in her fore-rib. Overall, a good female that can be mated to increase capacity in offspring.

Yes, I really wish she was black as well. There is not a lot of limi's in this part of the world. Only have three heifers out of this calf crop as well. The other two are black but don't stack up to this one in most areas

What a beauty. Is she Limo on both sides?

In my book, a well built Limo butt is hard to beat.

Bj is right on. But that's not a big issue she could potentially grow out of it and if not there are plenty of deep chested bulls out there to fix it. I like her :)
