    Nice pictures, thanks. Where was the pull? Is there an association for oxen pullers, we'd like to go to one sometime? :cowboy:

    was a local Northwestern mass. aggie fair, I believe they do them regularly around new england, but I am not sure, that was the first I have ever been too, they also had horse/pony teams but that roll of film still has yet to be developed.
    all the people with oxen were not local except one who was from a neighboring town, I believe most were from NY.

    I'm going to guess Brown Swiss on the second team, Charolais on the last. Not sure on the red team, and I can't really get a good look at the black team.

    I am familiar with all those breeds, these just look so tall. Like a draft horse or something! That is really something. Seen horse pulls, never ox pulls. LOL!

    A steer will continue to grow for years, most folks just don't realize it because they are slaughtered young.
