Comments: - My great-uncle had a huge Brahma bull that he named Double Ugly. That thing was massive and intimidating, but one of the most gentle bulls I’ve ever seen. It was no worry at all for children to walk or play around him and pet him. He was almost more of a pet than a breeding stock. Had a huge fenced meadow almost to himself and loved when people came to visit.
I once looked after store cattle, I had a favourite and you get to know what they're like personally.Loved every minute, if I could I'd own a few as pets.I was lucky enough to be a hand on a 32 acre field with barns and a vintage Massey Ferguson tractor.
We had Charolais, Red Poll or Pol. There was a couple other breeds that were big. Bigger the better. The calf's at birth were 120 lbs. I think the average is somewhere around 60. In January and February were the birthing months. There were even 6 that were AIED. We had to pull almost all the calf's. A Ranchers job is 24/7. Especially that time of year. We had over 360 head. Lost six. Pretty good numbers to me. Still changed to smaller cattle. That to me was a nightmare. Sleep deprived for a month and a half. In the winter in the snow. Most were Herfords or crosses. Black or Red Angus. Limousin, Simental. We had a mix. Think 146 was the largest. Was an AIED cow. Was a Holstein. Was a giant. Pulled that one too. Poor cow. This was Early 80's. Think we had six bulls that were over a ton. They wreck fences really good. Also when that big you go where you want any time you want. Back then Hot shots were still legal. We did sell a couple bulls to Joe Kelsey.
What about Santa Gertrudis and Droughtmaster? I love the way that when the narrator mentions the cow of a breed... they show a bull (the pork sausages between the legs are a dead giveaway).
Might want to get your facts straight the bulls you kept showing at #11 is a Hereford I know this because I’m a fifth generation beef farmer and that’s what we raise on our farm
It depends on what kind bull it is and depends one what the type of cow used fourth in the agricultural field a dairy cow is not the same as a beef cow a beef cow is not the same as a bison a bison bull is not the same as a denim bull.
