Our steers and sheep were raised together from two months old, to eleven months old. We put our ram in with our two steers, all three eleven months old, a month ago, when the ewes had babies. Tonight, we found one steer, having cornered the ram, had him upside down, with his hoof on his stomach! We put him out of that pasture, but he was out of breath for about an hour. I'm not putting him back in, but I couldn't find anything about this anywhere. Was the steer (Reuben) hungry, mean, playing, or what? He was butting him. It looked like he was trying to kill him. That ram has bullied HIM. Maybe he was getting him back?
