Franke, how old are these heifers?

They are march calves. The Commander is a 3/4 and the Insight is a 1/2 blood. Not by any means set up but not bad for the first time out of the pen.

They are both super clean fronted. I like the Insight calf best.

She is pretty but not as stout as the commander is right now.

In the picture, the Commander is too shallow in the girth and looks "piecie" to me and too much leg under her. But, as we all know, a picture CAN lie.

Yeah hopefully will get them washed next weekend and then I could get a better picture of the two. The insight does profile well though.

A little more than a month of working with them. Pictured the insight today for the sale catalog but took this one afterwards.

Is this the heifer that pictured above? Proof that videos give a lot more insight. I don’t care for the heifer that’s pictured above but like the one in the video. Although she is still a little leggy.. Might grow into it

For a March calf, she has nice rib and thickness. Like before, I love her clean front end.
