I made a steal of a trade for 10 pregnant herfords. They calved and of course were herfords. My question is should I steer them or sell as bulls? How much are they docked at the sale barn? I have a huge black angus bull for their next round of calves which will give me b and w face calves, are they docked big at sale barn ? I have included pics of a few calves. Thanks no experience with herfords.

Look like good calves to me. Steer them and sell at barn. I’ve never seen BWF calves docked unless they were inferior. Usually bring a premium if anything.
