Jus thought I would update this... The heifer had a huge 90+ pound heifer calf the beginning of April. We did have to do a little pulling but other than that the cow did great.

Here is a pic of her calf a few weeks ago.. I'll try get new pics tonight

I think you guys were right in saying she would produce a more commercial looking calf... I think we will keep this heifer back... We are more commercial anyways :D

We bred her back to a SimAngus again. She raised a really nice commercial heifer out of the bull last year so we bred her back to him. I can’t upload pictures right now (CT problems) but the second I can I will!
