Very new to the idea of cattle here. I haven't yet taken a book out on cattle. Please be nice. It seems every animal is different with inbreeding. Not that it is your ideal goal in any situation, but with dexters, is this asking for trouble? I'm speaking with someone selling cow/calf pairs, with the cow also bred for spring. If the cow gives us a bull and I keep him intact for breeding, would this be alright (of course IF he is breeding quality)? And.....another biggy. I have read here that the bull is usually fine in with the bred cow. Is this true? And can he always be left in or does he need to be removed at times? Thanks!
