SUPREME BULL – Hereford bull calf will be
champion. Great future. Good bodied
and muscular. Correctly balanced
from profile. Stouter than the
Red Angus bull calf

“Maybe gets a little closer for the Reserve Supreme Female spot. We have a nice heifer from the Registered Division and the Chapion Cow/Calf pair in contention here. As well as 2 nice Senior Yearlings from Div 2 Class 10. Again, we had a lot of back-and-forth discussion about this. We are looking again at our preference today, based on what we can see and evaluate. Perhaps some of this is switched around in a live setting, but working with what we have here…we select the Champion Cow/Calf pair from Div 3, the Hereford Pair as your Reserve Supreme. When you get down to it, breeding females are all about trying out best to project how they will be as high quality productive seedstock females. The Hereford Cow is already displaying her ability with a really nice Bull Calf at side. That gives her the edge here.”

Red Angus will be reserve. Looks very suitable for a calving ease type of bull. Not stout enough and plainer in terms of how he’s made from profile.

“Nice set of Registered Females. Your Champion Registered female will come out of Class 9 Entry 696020. Nice black heifer that puts a lot of good things together in one package. She has enough substance and brood cow value in her, while also maintaining above average femininity. Well balanced, sound made and very functional. She won her class fairly handily. Stands a bit more competition for Champion, but she edges out the Red Angus heifer form Class 10 with her added qualtiy and eye appeal, especially how she ties toghether the front 1/3 of her skeleton.”

“Really like the single entry Red Angus heifer from Class 10. A lot of brood cow potential in this one. Really appreciate her length of center body and hip. She has some good turn and shape to her upper rib cage, and plenty of power in this female. Just wish she tied that neck a bit better into her shoulders to give her that added eye appeal to compete for the Champion spot here.”

JUDGES GENERAL COMMENTS ON DIVISION 2
“DIVISION 2 (CHAMPION AND RESERVE CHAMPION FEMALE): A number of single entry females in this division, and one class to sort through. Some of the younger females have some true future in them. Would like to see a little more balance and eye appeal from the heifers out fo classes 6, 7, and 8 in this division to compete today, but I think with some time and feed these exhibitors will be happy with how their projects turn out. Some competition in Class 10 here. We felt this class sorted into a top pair of females with some differences, and it was all about where you place your emphasis. The white heifer that stands third sure has somegood body length and extension, she just needs to have more body and mass to compete higher. Back to our top pair, again depending on where you place your emphasis, you could see some swithching this pair around. We felt that today the 661145 heifer just read a little more honest in her composition and confirmation. The slicker haired heifer is a stouter featured female with a lot of power. Big ol hip and a lot of substance to this female. And she reads very honest in those qualites. That is why she wins today. Certainly would like to see her more feminine in her features, and that is where the 639288 heifer is definitely better. A much more feminine and angular female. She is very appealing from the side. Well made and balances up well. She just concerns us when you get behind her. This is a pair we’d really like to read closer live. But given what we have, the 2nd place heifer just reads like she is carrying some extra, unnecessary condition. Really heavy up around the pones, and as you read her walking away she sure wants to swing those legs inside of her skeleton. Makes us questions the real natural width there. Maybe lean her up a bit, and that could help things with this female. She certainly has some parts we like. Congratulations to the exhibitors.”

JUDGES COMMENTS
We have a really nice heifer in Class 9. A single entry that could really stand some more competition. A well made female. Has all the look and appeal you like to see. Feminine yet enough brood cow power. Sounds made, very functional in her design. We think this heifer has a really nice future ahead of her, in whatever the young lady chooses to do with her. She is they type of female that offers you a lot of mating flexibitly. If we are getting picky, I’d maybe like to see a little more depth of heel in her, but that is something you can tend to with a good hoof trim.

DIVISION 3, CLASS 1
REGISTERED ENGLISH AND EXOTIC BREEDS, COW/CALF

JUDGES COMMENTS
DIVISION 3 (CHAMPION REGISTERED COW-CALF PAIR): Some nice females in the Cow Calf division. 2 strong pairs at the top. The Char/cross pair in 3rd is just giving up too much in therms of power and fleshing ability to compete with the 2 pairs above her. However, she is doing a good job raising that calf on her side. A closer placing at the top here, but we felt the Hereford pair sorts to the top. Really nice cow. Balances well, is holding herself together really well, raising a high quality bull calf. This cow has a great future ahead of her, if this is how she is going to make them! Really like the balance of her udder as well, compared to the Red Angus female. Just a little more overall quality and substance to the Hereford pair. Taking nothing away from the Red Angus cow, as she is doing a good job raising a nice bull calf. Nice cow, with some quality to her. Would like to see her teats/udder balance up better.

DIVISION 4, CLASS 1
GRADE BEEF CATTLE, HEIFER CALF

JUDGES COMMENTS
DIVISION 4 (CHAMPION GRADE HEIFER): A nice class of grade heifers. The 183053 heifer wins the class pretty handily for us. An attractive, eye appealing heifer that catches your eye. A lot of future in this heifer. As she matures and begins to body down, you are going to like her even more. Easily the heifer that combines quality, look, substance and structural soundness to the highest degree of this set. The next 3 heifers all have a lot of substance to them. We would like to see them all freer in their structure and movement, but certainly if you can keep them functional as they mature, they should be able to make some good steer mommas for these exhbitiors, when mated correctly. The 626851 heifer just reads a bit more feminine and maternal in her kind, than the next 2 females (710215 and 104223). That is why she places 2nd. Again, a lot of substance and power in the next 2 females, they just appear and bit more terminal in their design. We’d surely like to give them some added structural integrity and make them more maternal in their appearance. The heifer that rounds off this group has some commercial brood cow potential to her, no doubt. She just gives up some of the added class and look that the heifers placing above her all feature. Congratulations to the exhibitors
