I am raising beef cattle for the first time. I bought two Simmental bulls from an old guy near where I live. I did quite a bit of reading before I bought and thought I had a handle on what to do. Mr. Abrams said to "wait until next month and have them cut". Well, I think they are too old to have castrated now. They are 6 months old. Anyway, I talked to a neighbor who raises cattle and asked his advice. He said he had a similar situation once and his vet said to save his money for castration. He and his wife both said the meat wasn't much different than a steer and they weren't too aggressive. My plan is to grass feed but give some corn throughout and have them butchered next fall. Any thoughts? Next time I'll have them banded before I buy.
