I have not seen anything about Bonsma's ability to select replacement heifers. The discussion I have seen is about cows that should have had at least 1 calf.

When Bonsma discussed type, was this about cows that had already had calves or was he able to select heifers between the ages of 7 and 13 months to go into the replacement pen?

df, while you're bringing it back up I'd like to know if the picture of Black Ink tells anything about poor daughters. I'm here to learn since it's too hot to work.

In my opinion the ability to pick replacement heifers lays in the genetic material that you have placed within them. The next step is to take the outliers off of the ends. If you have put the right material in them they will come out with the bonsma type, if you don't come out with the type that suits you, you have missed the point of this site.

Good point Bob Good point. We were in JV last weekend looked like it was the garden of Eden compared to 120 miles south.

J Hudson, not as good in all ways. Not as much of everything but fat! Not as much quarter. Not as much natural thickness. Also a throwaway or two, but really good bulls for purebred Angus.
