Why did you choose to enter this particular female in the contest? Promise Ring is a good example of the kind of animal we are striving for in our program. We like to see that pretty long neck, the balance in her body, smoothness. And the potential for longer horns helps. How has she developed and is she still a part of your program? Her last horn measurement was taken when she was 2 1/2 years old and she measured 61 1/2" tip to tip so she is above average for horn growth. She has continued to be fleshy and easy to keep. She was quick to breed and her genetics are a goldmine. She is a daughter of Working Man Chex crossed with our foundation cow Ringa Dinger so she is important to us. Any calves on the ground? Any progeny to report? She has a pretty udder and is doing a fantastic job of raising her first calf that was born in the fall.

Why did you choose to enter this particular female in the contest? We chose this female because of her comformation, color and eye appeal. How has she developed and is she still a part of your program? She developed on the same program that we use for all our females in the growth stages. This would be being weaned at 6 months of age, then being grazed on our coastal bermuda pastures and receiving a grain ration when needed to continue a good growth pattern. Any calves on the ground? Any progeny to report? We have since given the heifer to Samuel Faske for use in development of his breeding program. When Samuel took procession of her, she had a heifer calf at her side.
