Cherokee County, Northwest Iowa
Have you ever heard the term "soggy" to describe cattle? While standing in a pen of bulls before a sale, my friend used that term to describe a bull. I had never heard that term before. Friend later mailed me the ad for that particular bull sale, with a sentence stating "Our bulls sire heavy, soggy calves". Thanks. Bruce

Somebody can probably describe soggy better than I can, but I'll try. I think of soggy cattle as being deep bodied and easy fleshing. They might have kind of a loose flesh look to them as apposed to a tighter, smoother look.

This heifer calf of mine (in the foreground) was described by someone as "soggy". I wasn't sure if that was compliment or a put down...

That term was used on me by oldest after western cattle trip. I thought it was sawgy or something like that, like full and ready to go but I have no idea.

It is a compliment.

That heifer Jim is a good one any I think so,I"d take it as a complement I don't know how to spell it but my grandpa used ( that word ) it when his lambs where ready for market. I took it mean looking good.

To a carcass judge it would not be a compliment. But to a cow calf person a soggy bull normally means sires good doing cattle. Ben

Use it everyday in the horse world; means lots of muscle.

Interesting.

To me something that is "soggy" is all wet, soft and floppy and not a very positive state... And in my mind definitely not associated with a lot of muscle.

As applied to livestock the word must come from some other origin.

Thank you.
