Buy a (cheap and very laid back) bull ... let him breed the cows, then eat him. Fewer management issues.

Thanks,

We are not in cow country really, more horses than cows for sure. The bull in the fence makes sense to me. Right now I think all bulls get to be steers and we hire in the bull when its time. For safety of our fence.

We got the animals as a pair, the bull should have been snipped right off ive since learned. Now its a trickier to do without the squeeze or good cow hands to rope and sit on its head while he gets pinched, like we did in my yute.

I love learning new things as I age...
