Agreed no need to deal with problem cattle. Had a few bulls we've had to go this route on.

Angus to know to roam, I had one once and he was a idiot and just kept going from one fence to the next. Luckily for me the man I bought him from took him back. All Charolais for me now.

We did this to a black limousine when I was a kid. He ripped it out within a month and was back to his ways. Thatís the bull I referred to about grandpa going modern day rooster cogburn on. No lie, I bet there was at least 2 boxes of bird shot in him and a hand full of rat shot.

Hope your father gets well soon. Enjoyed reading this thread, I donít know much about anything, less than that about bulls. Maybe castrate him and he might stop roaming?

Well , you just said a handful there with your response - and I agree with you. You said limousine. Them things are athletes and will get rank. Had some a few years ago. They put me on a fence trying to load em.

Funny thing is, he was the most gentle bull we had. As a kid, I could walk out in the pasture and rub the top of his head and hand feed him. He was huge for a limousine too. But he would beat the hell out of the neighbors bull and take out 50 ft of fence in the process. If it was less than 6í heíd clear it like a deer. Hated to get rid of him bc he was so friendly. But, he had to go.

Had a young one doing same thing at my buddy’s place several years ago. He was out of town working and neighbor called him fussing for the 5th time. He called me and said shoot him and let the buzzards eat. A buddy of mine and me shot him and hung him from a front end loader. Filled up 5 150 quart coolers. We had hamburger burger and taco meat for over a year lol.

I’m tight and wouldn’t have bought a thing.
But that is a good looking bull. Don’t blame you for trying to keep him

I had some longhorn steers that jumped barbwire Fences like an elk.
Walk up slowl and jump over.
Didn’t have to worry about dragging their jewels!

I sold ‘em.
