G F Aug17 15470503 GrassFarmer Breed Champion
          The most expressive topline of the group. The thickest hindquarter in the class. I'd like to see some more stifle muscle here. The most correctly sized frame. A litte light boned compared to the rest of the class. Needs a little more depth of rib. The best front legs in the class. This steer is about as close to choice as you can get.
Crazy Sep17 15502560 CrazyCow Breed Reserve Champion
          A litte light boned compared to the rest of the class. A little incorrect up front. I don't like how the hind legs are setup. We would like to see a little more neck extension here. This steer is about as close to choice as you can get.

          Narrow topped. Maybe a little more thickness from behind would help. The best stifle muscle 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. I don't like how the hind legs are setup. The best neck extension in the class. This steer is about as close to choice as you can get.
