Don't keep them. I can have a truck there next week, send them to me. I like them although many will think they are too big.

Yes they are big. Average cow weight was 1545 and bull weighed 2200. But man they grow.

Sorry to hear about your father. I'd sell the bull and the calves, buy some Hereford embryo's, use them as recips.

What would embryo's cost and how much to get them put in? I guess I should say about how much. Prices vary I know.

Round here the vet charges $57 to put frozen ones in, including the shot. Embryo's seem to run $300/500. Ends up costing around what you could sell a weaning calf for at the sale barn.
