I have recently switched to an angus bull. I am keeping him on 2 acres at my house with the plan of putting him to work in the fall. He splits a bucket of feed every evening with a bred heifer along with the grass they graze everyday. He is a young bull, approx 16 mths old. I have noticed in the last few weeks that his shoulders and hips have decreased in size while his stomach continues to stay fat. Any suggestions or is this normal for this time of year? Also, he was certified to be ready to go to work by a vet when I bought him but was considering having him tested anyway before I put him to work. Do you think this is a good idea?
