Mine are scattered about. Never had any trouble other than they getting out a time or two. Once had a pretty good scare when 15 replacement heifers I raised went missing. Walked every fence and couldn't find anything wrong and was just about to call the sherriff when I heard something in an old house and there they were. Squatters.

Thanks for the experiences and opinions..most of my cows are quite suspiscious of strange people..the place is only 5 minutes down the highway and I'd go and check them everyday..Its a good deal to get them on a large area of ungrazed pasture..

As the saying goes, "trust your neighbors but brand your cattle."
My cows are about 7 miles from the house during the summer. Every single one of them has a brand on it. Not that there aren't ways around that but the people who know how to get around branded cattle are pro's not some stupid druggie.

BrimmerX means cattle that have Brahman genetics..a cross between Brahman and another breed.

wild cattle with horns helps.
won't keep somebody from butchering something but helps with live thievery.
