What a bunch of BULL Here we go. We're gearing up for breeding season. In JULY. The females were placed on our breeding mineral about 40 days BEFORE we started calving. Then we moved them home just as calving season began. The bulls were also placed on breeding...

Supreme Row ~ Our Supreme Champions bred and home raised

We have showed cattle for fun since I was about 10 years old. I was halter breaking calves before that. As a kid, dad gave my sister and I a bull calf to take care of one summer. We were to feed and care for it until August, then it would be sold, and the money we got...

Fly Season and Bull

While many before me have also found this to be worth paying attention to, maybe you may too! While bulls tend to have 5-10 times as many flies on them as a cow will, due to high testosterone levels, Bulls are a great place to quickly see your management and genetic...
