Mark That Card – Breeding Does

Placing: 3-1-4-2
Cuts: 5-4-3

Thank you to the Texas A&M Livestock Judging Team for providing the official placings and reasons.

I like the Breeding does 3142. That big footed 3 doe is just flat impressive. Not only is she so incredibly attractive in her look from the side with an elite hip and hind leg assembly, but to do so while maintaining competitive wether making pieces of skeletal width, roundness of body, and mass up high makes her next level. If you are chasing power, the stout forearmed 1 fits the bill. I would love to replicate the big pinned does round ribcage, extra mass, and feature. It’s just the extra set to her hock and plainer chest keeps the more moderate doe a distant second.

Still, it’s just easy to latch on to that kind of maternal mass and power to mark the middle 1-4. Don’t get me wrong, I know the value in the black headed does awesome skeleton and feminine look from the side. Personally, I wish she came with more. The flatter ribbed narrower pinned doe is just not near wide enough. With that being said, I know how hard it is to keep does with that kind of feature to still lay in correct in her knee and relaxed in the angle of her shoulder while having the right kind of posture to her hip and hind leg, so the bottom goes 4-2. I get it, the stouter pinned, bigger hipped 2 might throw wether prospects that can touch as good as any. Outside of a deeper chest and plainer front-end the round hipped doe sets a sharper hock on the frailest rear leg of the set, so she’ll be the hardest to breed around. Thank you.
