I have a bunch of one and done cows. They will be going to two separate pastures next week. I only had one bull and I like to breed them as it settles them down and the gain weight better. So I bought a cow freshener bull at the sale. He is a long yearling, black, built pretty long. Not a great bull but not bad either. I have certainly seen worse that people were breeding their cows to. For less than $1,000 he will work for what I need. His only down side is how aggressive he is about breeding. I swear the dog isn't safe. The chickens either. I wouldn't bend over out in the field.

He is so excited about getting this job I am afraid he may injure one of the cows.

Those yearlings usually settle down, usually. Some never do just like some bulls put all their weight on a cow when they breed and others carry their weight more on their own hind legs. Much like a gentleman carries his weight on his elbows.
