It's been a long time (40+ years) since we've had an angus bull roaming our pastures. Some of you know I recently bought a 9 month old angus bull calf, and I know angus bulls have a rep for being aggressive breeders, and early maturing. It is a hoot to watch this little fellow hustling behind one of my Simmental or limousin cross cows...and dodging the much larger Simmental bulls. He's a smallish bull, but very athletic. I had one cow left that calved about a month ago, and she came into heat over the weekend. The small bull literally drove the cows and bulls crazy with his teenage antics. One larger bull would have to stand guard while the other kept the little man away. What they don't know is that their days are numbered, and the little man is probably going to replace one of them, so he's just practicing.
