The belted galloway red bull, is for breeding our dun belted galloway cow and 2 hefiers. for very light milk production and beef it's just my wife and I we don't need gallons of milk daily, we barely drink a gallon every two weeks.Very nice looking cattle! Just wondering, what are your long-term plans for this Belted Galloway, if he stays nice? Do you plan to breed him, or tame him just to be a farm pet, or ?? Also are those others (Angus?) destined for meat or ?
It takes about 2 years to finish a grass fed steer or hefier for processing. About 21 months on grass & hay and about 3 months on grain and corn. I refuse to be a feedlot, or else I could finish them a lot quicker. I do give them a small ration of grain & corn daily, to help keep their fat white and provide minerals and vitamins they need to stay healthy. Reminds me... I need to set out the mineral lick now that winter is approaching and they will be on hay when the pasture is frozen.
