Live Animal Evaluation – What to Look for and Where
A Steak in Genomics™
Visual structure evaluation is best evaluated from the ground up. Go from hooves, heels, pasterns, knees, hocks, shoulders, hooks, pins, rump and back. "Be very critical of how they get out and travel." Womble said. For cattle with ample forage and feed, structure may be a little less important. For cattle on rough range that have to get out and look for forage, structure is more important.
