The Bull

The bull has been separated from the rest of the cows to try to stop the bull from serving the cows that are coming into cycle. We have segregated the bull in order to try to get all the cows calving at a similar time as this year we have had calves born throughout the year.

Our bull is a relatively new one and when he was introduced to the cows not all of the cows got in calf straight away and this has resulted in calves being born throughout the year.

The bull has a very  gentle nature and doesn’t seem to mind being separated from his herd of cows.

I will post a photo of our bull when I can get the main computer to work as it seems to have stopped working at the moment and all the photos are on the main computer! so watch this space for a photo of the bull.

  1. Hi Sara, I haven’t met many bulls in my lifetime, I am looking forward to seeing a photo of yours. The last one I saw I couldn’t get over the huge size of it, I was so relieved to be on the other side of the fence, do they really not like red, do you know? xComment by Louise – December 20, 2007 @ 9:10 pm
  2. Hi Louise,
    Yes it is amazing how big they are and it is always a relief to have a fence and trough between me and the bull, even though Bully Boy is very gentle and docile!
    I am not sure if they like red, although I have to say I haven’t tested this out and don’t think I dare!!!
    Thanks for the interesting question. Sara @ farmingfriendsComment by Sara @ Farming Friends – December 20, 2007 @ 9:27 pm
