    We've bought some 2 year old corrientes for roping but they were never cut as calves. I've cut many calves at brandings but never any this old or big. Any ideas on the best way to do this.

    At their age, you'd likely either need a vet or a calcitrate bander for the job.

    The local sale barn will have their vet either cut them or clamp them as the buyer directs. Some of them will go over 800 lbs.
