When did you tag them?Had every intention of banding at weaning.
Didn't work out that way. One is steered.
I need to make more of an effort to band em early!
So far. I have 4 bull calves on the ground out of 16
Got 2 more to go at one place, then I need to get er done. Tho my hereford bull calf will probably remain a bull. I wanna see how he does.
This group got tagged here at home when born. I'm ashamed, but I just bought a banding tool a few weeks ago....When did you tag them?
They are easiest to catch when still wet.
Bull calves today were bringing 20 to 30 cents less than their steer herd mates at Williams Lake BC.
As KAStocker posted, you are giving away a $100 plus profit to the guy that buys and castrates your calves.
