I am considering keeping a Jersey steer as a pet. He would come from a family with two Jersey milk cows. He would be allowed to stay with his mother until weaning. He would be handled and cared for like a pet as his mother is a pet. They hate to sell the bull calfs for meat so I offered to take a bull calf if I could get some info on steers as pets. When is the best age to geld the calf? What is the least tramatic method? Will a vet anesthetise the calf if I request it? Can a steer become aggressive? Will he be OK to live with other animals ie: goats and a donkey? I have been unable to find the answers I want on any website. I guess not many people keep steers as pets!
