From behind the shoulder, the back should be fully developed and well rounded. Any slight sinking or hollow is decidedly objectionable. It should also be as straight as possible. The ribs should spring boldly out and be both well rounded and deep.
When measured across the hips the breadth should be very great, and the quarters should be exceedingly well developed from the hips backwards. The thighs should also be well developed and should show great fullness. Viewed generally, the hindquarters should be square between the hips and the tail, and from between the tail right down to between the hind feet.
The legs, both before and behind, should be of moderate length and strong, the bones strong, broad and straight, the hoofs well set in and lacking faults, the legs well feathered with hair. The animal should be set wide between the forelegs, and it should move with great dignity and style.
The cows should have well attached udders with a strong center line and four teats of moderate lenght for easy milking by the calf. The scrutum on the bull should be well developed and pendulant with two testes of equal size and shape. Testicle size in a yearling bull has a high correlation with his fertility and the rate of maturity of his daughters.
