Made the mistake of getting in my corrals after I poured cubes in the trough so I could pen up a cull cow. When my herd bull came in I was to the side of one of the pens. Instead of runing straight to the cubes he turned left straight for me. I jump over the side of the corral like a rodeo clown. I dont get in the lend with them anymore when they are coming in to feed. Only after they are already feeding and occupied. He has not been aggressive since but I never turn my back.

Was he being aggressive or just looking for cubes a little too excitedly?

I like to assume just so excited looking for cubes. He was already at a full run when he came from the back pasture. Some of the heifers and cows had beat him there after I started my feed calling.

I've got a charolais/Hereford heifer that I bottle raised. She's tame, friendly and laid back but has discovered she'd rather roam and grass OUTSIDE the fence. She started this when she was in a pasture with old barbed wire that she'd stretch and walk through. Well, when I moved her to my new farm a few weeks back I figured with the 8 strand high tensile fence, I wouldn't have a problem... WRONG!! Never thought I'd see a 7-8 month bred, full grown cow be able to squeeze through an 8 stand fence!! I finally got a fencer on the fence and after a few days, finally found all the shorts, she now stays in!

This is old but i was having fun reading this thread and suddenly thot of a stunt I still laugh about today. Growing up I always liked to have a tame calf or two out of Dads herd that I could play with. Well there was one black brockle face steer about a month old who loved scratches and head/knee butting fights. Spring melting was happening, you know where you have slick ice under 6 inches of muck.. anyway I was out fighting with this guy his head to my knee and finally I’d had enough and turned away to head inside. Well I hadn’t got far in my wander off when suddenly I found myself sitting serenely in freshly melting cow poo. Little stinker had come up behind me and put his head between my legs and set my down as nice as u please. My clothes made a bee line for the washing machine. Oh and that reminds me of the time my Ayrshire milk cow backed into me in the barn against the wall so I couldn’t move and then pooped all over me. Those clothes didn’t even make it to the washing machine. I stripped right in the barn and yelled at my mom for clothes. It had been several years since she’d seen my in my birthday suit
