We created “Club 50” in 2010 as a result of our outstanding crop of 2008, 2009 and 2010 heifers. To qualify, a heifer must be at least 50”TTT on her 2nd birthday which projects to 75”TTT or more. We will be adding members to this exclusive club as they qualify. We will also track their progress on their birthdays as they pass the 70” and in some cases the lofty 80” mark.
There are lot of horn projection formulas being used for heifers and young cows. We have a hard time with projections for animals less than 18 months old and prefer to wait until 24 months. The general rule at 24 months is TTT x 1.5 = TTT at maturity. The projection formula we use at 24 months is a range of 1.4-1.5x. Therefore a 50" two year old projects to 70-75" at maturity. At 36 months we will adjust the projection depending on TTT at that time. We hope you enjoy looking at Club 50 heifers as they mature.
