We had one like that last year, nice bull we sold him at the end of the breeding season. I imagine they grow out of it. It would really tic our son off, but we have one doing it again this year. They don’t want their girls grazing to close to the fence where they can see another bull. I equate it to teenage boys protecting their territory.

Don't bet on that.

I had one years ago that kept the cows all bunch in a corner and wouldn't let them get to water. That didn't work as well for him as he was thinking.

Eventually they cant control every rebellious girl under their care if you come around with grain or something! well we will see if he does it again the next breeding season! hopefully its not a trait that can pass down to heifers as it seems to be a man thing...
