Possible Keepers

Postby holm25 » Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:02 pm

Just figured I would post some pics of some possible keepers. What do y'all think and which are your favorites?
All are April calves out of a SimAngus bull and some random cows.

Didn't like 23 and 3 that much. Personally the black heifers looks better than the reds.

You picked my least favorites! Number 3 is gonna be lucky if she sticks around! She is in the idk list. 23 will be staying though.

22 is personally my favorite red but she is so darn hard to get a decent picture of!

Ship red 3, keep the rest. Blacks are better overall. Nice group of replacements. You should get some good productive cows from this group.

These are the nicest calves we have ever had. But they just keep getting better each year! Hopefully these guy make good cows that make even better calves :D

I don't like 23 much at all, I do like 22 though, 3 looks a little short, but the picture certainly doesn't help her in that aspect... 18 looks like she's all legs and no length as well.

My pick would be the 3rd black one down or the 3rd black one up.

I really think 22 should make a nice cow but we will see. Her mom is an absolute Hippo. Her name is actually Hippo. 3 is short and that is why she is at the bottom of the list and 18 is all legs!

Overall, a nice group of April heifers. The one I would be most concerned with is the red one nursing. She "appears" to be post legged. Structure is most important - than look at the rest of the animal.
