While there we assessed over 100 first calving Stetson daughters, as well as a large number of Stetson sired yearling and 2 year old sale bulls. All were very sound structured and consistently displayed tremendous thickness, depth of body and muscle pattern and it was pleasing to see the females carried the thickness but still remained smooth shouldered and displayed femininity.
