First thing is it seems that the older an animal the longer it takes to adjust to fescue. Some thoughts are that it is really hard after they are over 10 months or so.Hogtiming":3to7v1qp said:Any recommendation on the time of year to move a bull from the Midwest to the fescue belt without it having to much of an effect on him?
That's the best advice for sure. I never worry about where my cattle go in the different parts of the US because they have been raised on fescue for decades. They usually do better in different environments.kenny thomas":3ouwfv6s said:Really good advice is to buy bulls that were raised on fescue.
Yes bulls are tough they aren't bad foolproof when it comes to fescue. Is it worth taking a chance of loosing a calf crop?MtnCows93":3u1ntkla said:why not buy a bull closer to you? the trucking has to be expensive, but if you are gonna do it just do it! bulls are tough the'll adjust eventually
It actually isnt done a lot is why your not getting any comments. The ones here like me that have tried will not give good ideas except get the bull from fescue.Hogtiming":1hv1g0oz said:It has to be done a lot. I’m just curious if anyone has had experience doing it. Which season would be the best.
