Animal Owner Placing
Igiso . May18 16699325 Lithium Breed Champion
          Needs some more hindquarter to compete here. Lacking a bit in the stifle. The most correctly sized frame. A litte light boned compared to the rest of the class. The deepest animal in the class. A little incorrect up front. The best neck extension in the class. This steer is about as close to choice as you can get.
BFLC 16665494 GV Bratton Family Livestock Co. Breed Reserve Champion
          Thickest over the top. The thickest hindquarter in the class. Not the right frame size for this group. The best bone structure in the class. Needs a little more depth of rib. The best front legs in the class. I don't like how the hind legs are setup.
BFLC 16719004 GV Bratton Family Livestock Co. 3rd in Class
          Just doesn't have it over the topline. The best stifle muscle in the class. The best hing leg in the class. We would like to see a little more neck extension here.
