Disposition of Ten-X sons?

Postby tom4018 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:14 pm

Wondering what others think of the disposition of his sons? Bought one a couple years ago and his attitude is getting worse.

I've had one for three years now and he's as calm now as he was when we first got him.

He just likes challenge you, head down and pawing the ground trying to charge you. Last night he got in the hay lot as I was feeding hay and about got me. I have a hot wire around the lot and after I got him out he jumped the gate as I was putting it back up, he has been getting worse lately about coming after people.

Might just be me, but every time I am in the vicinity of a bull I keep my attention toward them. Just like a dog, i'm sure the calmest bull can snap. With the role we play, i would think they see us as a challenger often times.


That said, i don't think i could allow a bull to stay after what you described. Guys/gals are killed all the time by their livestock. Life's too short.

Family friend had his back, quite a few ribs, and a leg broken by his bull last year. Luckily he was able to roll/be pushed underneath a piece of equipment. Or it would have killed him.

Life is just too darn precious and short.

Plus, they are just too big and strong to have to worry about fighting with them.

Not good. Might be time for him to go. Do his calves act the same?

Trailer time. I wouldn't have a bull with attitude in the first place. If it's getting worse, you're putting yourself & others in danger.

After that, I'd call the processor and have him meet me at the farm, then go out and have the pleasure of putting one between his eyes.

We have two grandsons and they are both very calm. I've been around their Dad as well at the breeders farm and he's a puppy.

Probably best that he goes.

Have you ever tried accepting the challenge? I'm not against showing a bull or cow they are in my space.

I have a Ten X son and do not have any problems and am planning on selling him pretty soon. I've had a couple before him too and never had any problems.

I think he should go as well. With handling bulls I do not take any nonsense from them but as they mature i will not put myself into a direct confrontation with them as in head on, I leave that to my dog Jed to do, he will bite them on the nose and grab hold of their cheek and turn them back very effectively and once turned I will come in and drive them along with his help. If you challenge them head on and you lose, you have lost your power over them for ever, best to avoid that direct confrontation. When I am working my bulls my dog Jed will be lying in the adjacent yard and they know he is there and they toe the line, Jed is quick to move if any of them give any $hit.

Overall they seem ok.
