This is my prospect... he is turning out super nice, this picture is a bit old.
And my current herd bull: (the sire of the above bull)
I feel like that picture doesn't flatter him too well. His calves' growth rates and birth weights are phenomenal.
Draining it most times is the only thing that saves them from my opinion. like @Double R Ranch said...
I've been so persnickety careful about this I haven't had problems for a while so I ain't the most experienced.
Ouch. Hope you recover ok.
I run barrels and poles at rodeos so I've seen a lot... The risks we run for a few seconds of fun... lol
We rode our 4H cows as kids... luckily we never got majorly hurt (I mean, they were 4H cows, dirt tame)
That is a funny pic! Nice looking calves.
Last year was so dry we were feeding hay in June, now we can't even bale it because it is too wet.. But wow we are thankful!! Finally the river is flowing again.
I honestly only have experience with Exiss trailers, but they are SO worth it, mine is a 2004 and still in perfect order even with heavy use. (I show horses and raise cattle so...)
This is mine:
However I understand if they are simply not an option for you.
