    Do you rent or buy your bulls? I remember the first year dad bought bulls. They were Charolais and I fed them all winter. They were my bulls, all eleven. I had them named and they listened to my every command. When they would get out I would crack the whip and they would go back to where they were supposed to be. One day I was in town when they got out and my dad tried to get them in and all hell broke loose. I guess they were my bulls.

      Karen,
      This is not a bull J and I purchased. Actually, I took this photo a year ago and never got around to using it. I thought sharing it in the “heart” of bull sale season seemed appropriate.

    I always learn a bit when I stop in here. Being raised in a city and all… Love the photo my friend.

    Hugs~

  5. Bulls have always fascinated me, just the sheer structure of them. But having a few friends & family in & around the cattle industry, learning a little about the “business of bulls” fascinates me further!

      Amanda,

      My Dad worked for a registered Angus Ranch for 10 years when I was young. I didn’t get in on the business things of being a seedstock producer, but have a lot of memories AI cows, feeding and sorting cattle ect. There is a lot more to raising seedstock than commercial cattle. If you love genetics and matching up genes this is definitely a fun and challenging side of the cattle business.

  6. Great post and magnificent photo! ~

    thanks, carol mckenna and artmusedog ^_^

    We have a sale coming up in a few weeks. But we are not buying. Have 8 Balancer Bulls listed to sell and two of them are the kids. We have raised and sold for many years now and I always enjoy the auction. Stay warm out there!

    We have to replace several bulls this year, so bull sales are in our future this winter/spring.
