    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    No but I initially asked same question; I looked in a tiny tree grove for blood splatters I surveyed the area quite a while (why hubby loaded him before I could get my glove into the hole cause it took a while to look at tree Stubbs, I checked the rusty hay ring, the barbed wire fence etc) this...

    oh my God yes vaccinated- he was right near our home we saw him at least every other day, he never limped, never lost his appetite. It’s not blackleg

    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    The x could have been the stretching from the enormous swelling he’d already undergone, I think he’d been dead 1 day before I found him. Or a coyote came along at night maybe trying to eat him and maybe our bull chased them away..... just all speculation

    Its tremendous to have our tragedy doubted; we’ve never had this happen before we were a little shocked - awful that it wasn’t dissected to your liking

    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    No we never cut into him hubby wouldn’t let me try to dig bullet out he was too swelled was afraid guts would go everywhere then we’d have never gotten him off our property into trailer. we found him 1.5 days ( between time I last saw him) just like that.

    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    Well there’s really no way— we are back off highway to we’re no one could intentionally shoot our cattle that are way in the back. Just don’t think it’s possible that it was intentional. In back of pastures are huge fields of crops that no one could drive into without our City neighbors noticing .

    Red vs. Black Cows

    Yes there is; I have red angus and some blacks and Charolais; blacks sell for 10-12cents / per 100lbs more in Kansas it’s just a fact.

    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    No. when I went to get my rubber gloves on hubby already had him loaded in trailer....he said no we are not going to start sticking fingers in him he’s way too swelled already. He and neighbor were afraid he’d bust guts out all over, already bad smelly. Guessing it happened Sunday morning ...

    Think someone shot our steer, has a hole in shoulder he’s dead.

    This steer and 1 bull were penned 250 yards from our house in pasture. So if this was a bullet - we are all lucky we weren’t shot. Assuming the skin abrasions are from bloating stretch- hole the size of my pinkie in lower up/ down abrasion -if u enlarge pic it’s circled. It had bubbly looking...

    Anyone ever use Dwarfs Essex Rapeseed?

    It was recommended by our seed company as a cheap helper to open up the ground, put nitrogen back in ground (or some more intelligent reason on a note at hm.) — but then hubby found an article saying it if it doesn’t get tilled under before it flowers it can become a huge nuisance. seed...
