But they all have different personalities- Taco very friendly, Mouthy Buddy will approach but skittish, Shadow and Houdini will back away

    Nice looking steers! Are they for the freezer or to sell? I wish we had room to raise a couple of steers!

    Houdini is 3 so he'll be going bye-bye here soon. Shadow is around 18 months, Mouthy Buddy and Taco are both around a year. If we do like we did last year when we sent Gaylord ( don't ask how he got his name because I don't even know) to the slaughter for about a week before he went we had him corralled and feed him plenty of finisher feed.

    They are on lovely pasture and seems plenty of it. Nice looking steers you have there -- mouth is watering at the thought of those steaks!! :fl

    Gaylord was 393 hanging last year when he got butchered so I expect when Houdini goes he will be right around that weight
