Every few years cattle farmers have to change their breeding stock. The bulls get too big or they may throw calves that just don’t suit. This year we are sending to market our two big bulls. They’ve gotten too big and several of the calves this year weighed 100+ pounds when they were born. We like for them to weigh 60-75 pounds. Big calves can cause problems for mom during birth and vets are not cheap!! As it turned out the two bulls weighed just under 2 ton. Lonnie weighed 2000+ and Caldwell weighed 1980 pounds.
We raised one of our own that was born two years ago and his name is Clyde. We bought another one from one of our neighbors and his name is Hammer. Hubby is looking for a two year old bull to put with them since they are so young.
So in with the new, out with the old and hopefully some happy cows come mid-June!!
