kinda of new

Postby austinssteer » Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:03 pm

Hi I have been reading here for about a month. It all started when my 4 year old son wanted Santa to bring him a baby cow for Christmas. That is all he asked Santa for, so we had to get him one. Christmas morning he got up and Santa had left a bottle, milk replacer, halter, rope, and a note that his baby cow was outside. He went out there and Santa left him a baby cow and built him a little barn to keep warm in. So I needed to start learning more about cattle and found this place. I really enjoy the coffee shop and have learned alot from the other forums. CROWDER FOR PRESIDENT :D ;-)

Ummmmm, maybe I'm missing something here, but is that not what a calf who was banded at birth would be called?

Yes we had it done after we got him. Some people told me he would not be a mean. My son is only four and it is a pet nothing more. He gets up early every morning and feeds him and every afternoon when we get home. He also cleans his pen and like to brush him.

I do not mean to talk down to you nor imply anything, but I would caution you about the degree you let your son interact with this calf. It sounds like you are unfamiliar with cattle and this steer can seriously hurt your son without meaning to. A calf running around and kicking an adult is a bruise, but a calf kicking a 4 year old child is something else entirely. And that does not take into account bunting, or just rough housing on the part of the calf. They are not pets.

I have been around cows before. He is very interested in cows. When I say a pet I mean we will not be eating him. I am always out there with him. It is to see how much he like cows and maybe get more involved with cattle.
