This year I had one of my best Balancer bull calves get his tail ripped off just above his switch. I wish he was a steer instead of a bull I was going to market. I figured he was laying down and a cow stepped on it and he jumped up and the rest is history. :roll: B&G

You aren't buying my theory that it got caught up in a barbed wire fence and she simply tore it off trying to get away?

Anything is possible when it comes to cattle....you can throw- one-cow on a thousand acres...and there be a tiny spot of trouble...she'll find it..the old saying,, it's not if,, its when...



You got that right.

Those hooves are razor sharp....a cow ain't like a horse, the horse will feel off balance and move usually.. A cow will stand there like a stale bottle of pee...
