Alright...relatively new to cattle, but not new to livestock by any stretch of the imagination. We had a little bull calf born on the weekend so now I need to castrate. Can I please get some advice on when, how etc. I have castrated hogs, so I am not beyond cutting this calf either...I just don't know when I should do it or maybe somebody has some tips before I simply wrestle him to the ground with a scalpel in my hand! Is it easier to wait until he is older and use a chute? Do it now when he is small? Wait till prior to weaning? What's an emasculator? Any and all advice considered valuable! Thanks.
