I just bought a 2 yr old bull. Also a cow with a heifer calf for a small start up herd. I was wondering as Brett was about the age to start breeding. Do i need to separate the baby when she is old enough to come into heat or can nature just take its course? Right now she is only four months old so when would I need to worry?
I love these little cows!!! I do home butchering which is why I got this small breed - they are perfect for me and I couldn't be happier with my breed choice. The bull is very tame and calm and polite to the ladies. I don't think I would feel comfortable to own a different breed of bull having never raised cattle before. I have the neighbors bringing their jersey milk cows down for visits. Everyone was excited to have a bull in the area and he seemed to get the job done even with the full size ladies.
