    A good old bull, part one.

    There's not much I can say without repeating myself. Twice before I said your cattle look good and the last pics look the same. There are cattle that have a knack for crawling through fences, it's in their nature and that makes it part of their disposition. It's genetic. If you keep those kind...

    A good old bull, part one.

    He sure had an issue with the neighbor he mentioned in the post. I'm just going by what he's mentioned in his posts. I've been to Alberta several times. My father spent most of his youth in Lacombe. I have more relatives in Alberta than I have in the states. Do I know any of his neighbors, idk...

    A good old bull, part one.

    I haven't been around every type, but if any cause trouble they go. The Blanchard and Lindgren Banner Domino cows were pretty darn tough. We had a good group of them when I was a kid. They were well known for their disposition problems. They came from a registered herd of 900 cows in the...

    "This is not directed at alexfarms. I have seen their posts on here and I like what I see. But their post here seem out of sort." LOL. Hmmm. Let's see, your post isn't directed at me, but it's my posts that are the topic of your post? Maybe you could clarify your statement for me? Meanwhile...

    A good old bull, part one.

    Breeding cows (libido) and tearing up fences are two different things. A good disposition bull doesn't tear up fences. You're saying a bull doesn't have a strong libido unless he tears through fences? If you can't keep a bull where he belongs and under control he's useless. The hardest animal...

    Lol. Your writing was so mesmerizing I had to go to bed. It's a smaller world than you realize. They are nice looking cattle, but then I already mentioned that.

    You make all the jokes you like. Anyone who would treat his neighbors with such disrespect and makes light of it on a public forum isn't going to earn much respect from anyone for long. I'm not one bit ashamed to have been the only person on this forum to object to your actions or attitudes...

    A good old bull, part one.

    Yes I said it twice and I'll keep saying it if I have to. The bull has a bad disposition, the neighbor definitely did not give an "ok", if you read his post, and the bull should have been culled. What's so special about a bull with average performance, he stayed sound for 10 years and he likes...

    A good old bull, part one.

    Well, it needed to be said. I've dealt with poor disposition bulls like this and it does bother me that someone could take such a casual attitude toward damaging others property and operations. It's a major mess when you can't keep a neighbors bull out of you pasture and your neighbor just...

    A good old bull, part one.

    LOL!! You call this a good disposition?: "As a yearling I let the young lad breed a few cows, his first calves were S's. That fall he wasn't satisfied with just a few and crawled 4 fences and found some cows of my neighbors 3 miles away. My neighbor kindly counciled I should get rid of him as...

    He is a nice looking bull and I respect the longevity, but I can tell a lot about a guy by how much respect he gives his neighbor. Bulls with that kind of problem disposition should be gone.

    Wow. Got a picture or registered name for the bull?

    bull condition

    Probably a good bull, definately a bad pic. At least the owner posted himself, so he's no one to thank but himself. It's not hard to take a bad picture of the best looking cattle. What really chaps my hide is when some one goes out and buys an animal, takes it home and abuses the crap out of...
