Here's another GREAT document on cattle conformation:

An Analysis of Beef Cattle Conformation

I also found this to be of interest, especially to those who are breeding cattle with Hereford influence:

Selection for Problem Free Eyes

And some more articles of interest:

Selection of Beef Cattle for Functional Efficiency
Judging Dairy Cattle WARNING: 4.56 MB file!
A Guide to Udder and Teat Scoring Beef Cows
Genetics of Coat Colour in Cattle
Beef Cattle Anatomy and Ultrasound
Reproductive Tract Anatomy and Physiology of the Bull
Preventing Hoof Problems for Dairy and Beef Cattle

And a bit of a test/worksheet to see/practice [how good you are with] cattle anatomy. ;)
Beef Cattle Terminology

There, I think that's good enough....for now. :)
