Being fined boned is a Pied trait. It is really strong bone as they originated in the lower part of the Alps. Just like commercial cattle the clean front is something I select for.


Hey Slick, what do you mean when you say "clean front"? Thanks a million!

BTW...I like that heifer!

Thanks. She can be yours. :lol2:

I want the front shoulders sloped and not blocked so they will have an easier birth. Also, I don't like the looks of a lot of extra leather (dewlap) on their neck. Just gives that front a cleaner appearance.

Great group of Charolais cows/calves.
I'm jealous. I've been having to skimp on pastures and it shows on the calves.

Have any new pictures of her?
