heifer issue

Postby klyle17 » Sat Oct 14, 2017 8:43 am

I have a red angus heifer born 4/23/2016 pregnant with her first calf and due in march. I am the second person to show her and I have some issues with how her brisket is turning out. I spoke with my breeder and apparently the previous owner fed her beet pulp which created a bunch of fat on her brisket area. Is there any way to reverse this or try to hide it?

I can't see the photo but a good lactation should knock it back a bit if you don't feed her extra.

If you keep showing her, you will not reverse. If you stop showing her and quit feeding like you have been to compete, she will make a nice cow.

Kick her out on grass and quit feeding her. JMHO
