I have tended to have several bulls about the same size, w/o the big guy you mention.
Is Max still used for breeding?

He is! He is on a commercial herd just a few miles from home right now. He is sound as a pound, looks incredible for his age/miles, and passes his semen tests with flying colors. As long as that is the case, he has a job! Titan is the only one who has semi-retirement status. I will have to get some pictures of the boys when they are all home again for a bit!

Just open dirt lots?

Have bulls in much smaller pens than that and they do fine.
