Sure I didnt setup my profile fully let me know if you can see my location I think I did it right. If you can’t, I’m in Maryland. I’ll update it when I get off work@410farmer , could you add your state or general area to your profile so it shows up in your avatar when you post? I have a hard time remembering where people are from unless they have been on here awhile and are some that I interact with regularly. It helps to get advice and for someone to know when given advice, what area it might pertain to.
You made the comment about " here in the east" so I was curious to what general area you are in. I was born and raised in Ct and had family in Vt but moved here to Va 35+ years ago. I enjoy reading about other areas, but what works here, like types of grasses and hay, often does not work for those in Texas. Same with availability of certain breeds of animals.
How did you train them to come when called?.. once you finish the steer do you have any plans for company for the bull calf?My little bull calf finally trusts me enough to let me touch him. Just a nose rub and will take a range cube, but it’s a big step. I’ve been letting them all run out in the pasture and they all come in with a quick call. I want them penned at night. The cross fencing will be done this coming week and my steer and bull will get separated from the girls. My bull calf doesn’t like to be alone, but no herd animals do.
Here you go @B&B Happy goats, someone with the same issue you have now. Could be a good resource for you and your soon to be service dog.I’ve trained 2 service dogs through the years. One is my own, I’m deaf in one ear so I can not triangulate sound. Hearing things I can’t locate is frustrating. She is trained for doors, phone, sirens when driving and she taught herself to alert to my gps. Guess she has a fear of getting lost.
