This Will Make You Have A Bad Day

Went to check my cows this morning and my bull didn't come up, jumped on the Ranger and went and found him.

A guy from Auburn just left, they removed the brain stem and will have it tested, says it takes about a week and we'll know the cause. They actually paid me a hundred bucks for it. Now I'm only out 3400.00 instead of 3500.00 :D

Man that makes you sick at your stomach. Looks almost like he was shot. Any signs of struggle??

No sir, me or my neighbor would have heard it and he was 3/4 of a mile from a road. I noticed he was a little slow the last couple of days, but never down or not eating. I watched him breed one of my late calvers yesterday morning. She was the last one I was waiting on and I was gonna pull him out this weekend.

Wow! That is awful, especially since he was "working" yesterday morning. Sorry for your loss - and you too, JW. And yes, please post the results.

He's a 5th year vet student at Auburn, said that it looked like a lot of internal bleeding, but there were no holes in him. I saw him at 6 pm yesterday afternoon, but he was really bloated when I found him this morning. He musta died shortly after I left there yesterday afternoon.
