We're raising a jersey bull calf for beef. He's about 2 months old. We bought him from a dairy, and the seller told me he was too young to castrate, but didn't tell me when the "right" time was. When is the best time to do it and what is the best method?
I'm a do it yourselfer, but I don't want to get into more than I can handle (with the castration anyway). Should I have a vet do it?

Thanks

I've heard that jersey bulls can be pretty mean. When do the hormones kick in and he starts acting like a bull? Also, when is a good time to put him in the freezer - Is it weight or age or both that should determine?
