Couldn't agree more that a thermometer is one of the best investments on a farm/ranch! Also a rope, halter & gloves.

I may have misunderstood your original post when you referred to her as "one of your heifers" but then in your update you said (all steers). Is it possible she's getting a little knocked around if she's the only heifer and it's nothing more than a bruised ear? Also why she tends to hang back? That said, I'd still watch her, take her temp, check her ears and then proceed accordingly.

Who can afford to give Draxxin without taking a temperature?

need a chute to work cattle , I don't think so, its nice and I am sure glad I have one. but if you have a calf that needs doctored a rope and a post will work. a 400 lb. is not that big growing up Grand pa did not care if they were 200 lbs. or 1500 lbs. we roped them and snub them to a snubbing post. Been there and done it, not the best way but it will work.
