Do you ever wonder why some cattle (notice I didn’t say COW) are born bulls? But are sold as steers? Last year was a learning curve for us AND the cattle. Do you know what happens when a “bull” becomes a “steer”?
Well, wonder no more! But in an effort to keep this a family friendly post, I will explain “Banding” another time. Let us just say that it is a lot easier when they are new-born. Last year they waited almost 6 months to band them, not a mess that we wanted to do AGAIN this year! Most of the time it is easier to keep Mom and calf together. Banding? Not one of those times.
