Sold my brother in law a cow and a bull over the past couple years. I would say he has fed them well.

Yeah he is good sized. He feeds year round no pasture and he made too much corn silage last year and has been trying to feed it up. Increased cow flesh and calf birthweight size he figures.

Thanks! I really appreciate it. The bull and his flushmates were very pleasing to me. I got one heifer out of it and I’m keeping her cuz we lost the cow.

Really like that cow... And the bull is pretty darn good as well. If you can I’d love to see pictures of his calves when they start to hit the ground...
