nieghbor got a cpl cows and a bull..trainwreck for me

Postby dieselbeef » Wed Aug 16, 2017 12:27 pm

so they have cow exp....dad worked for a decent size ranch here....but does everything in a higher class than me tho....far as fertilizer no til drill blah blah. cows aint nothing special

got some Hereford cross out there..bout 10 on maybe 7 acres. 5 pairs. and a bull..angus thing..not bad looking young one but a skinny butt angus anyways.

cept their fence joins along my heifer weaning fenceline. he doesn't do much on his fancy pasture keeping as far as fencing. at that he aint worth a dang. so come this last weekend of the month when the moon is right ive got 8 hiefers and 2 steers to go into that 10 ac pasture his borders on.

soooo. im not to thrilled about his crappy angus breed into my beefmasters. got some real nice hiefers im gonna keep back and don't need his bull contaminating my herd

any thoughts on how I might approach this before his bull ends up in my place. ive already helped his 2 young [10 and 13 yr old] sons get back a cpl loose ones. and yesterday I ran over to get ones head out of the gate..

Sounds like you might have a good enough relationship. Maybe y'all can get together on that fence. Get it fixed up right and a good hotwire on standouts on the bull side.

Fwiw I like a black Angus x beefmaster :D

Yup, hotwire, lots of it!.. and if you can manage it, a bit of a divider fence to keep them from getting tooo close to each other

A young bull is better than a older bull. Put the wire on top if you can't put it on his side.

It's tough but I would not let a situation happen. I would rethink where you put those heifers, having them right next to your neighbours fence is asking for trouble no matter how good the fence is. Once they find they can get through a fence with the heifers they will never stop trying no matter how well you upgrade it, best to not put temptation there to start with, it is tough, you feel you have the right to use your property as you see fit and he believes he has the right to use his as he sees fit. Put them somewhere else.

A lot of times I've found that the bull isn;t the real problem, it's slutty heifers/cows that will go anywhere and through anything to get bred.

Both very, very good points. I was thinking maybe hay the 10 acres and pasture elsewhere.

I got half dozen bulls on the other side of the fence no problem you get the fence hot enough.
Secondly don't share fences solves lots of problems.

I didn't share fence for 20 yrs..now I don't have the choice..hot wire isn't gonna happen...not buying a fence charger and all that to put out in the middle of nowhere

its the only pasture I have for weaning fenced good enough. I guess I gotta go bust my A$$ to fix a problem I didn't have.

he sposed to call me back today..see when its gonna be gone. his wife said its not their bull

Hope you like the looks of his bull, because without a good hot wire your fighting a loosing battle.
