Even though it is a steer, it is still a male. A show of dominance may have been taking place.

I pulled two cows out of the herd this spring. An old Holstein who I wanted to treat special with extra feed and a young Angus who lost her first calf and hadn't had her second one yet. Only two of the herd which hadn't calved. I brought up the herd a couple of week ago when field work was being done. Angus jumped the electric fence to rejoin them. She ended up fighting just about all of them even though she had only been out for about six weeks. Pecking order had to be reestablished.

Essentially your answer is yet. A year-old-steer wouldn't have particular difficulty killing you, much less a ram.
