The good crush is on my list for sooon!! We have a head bale still not in place and desperately need to liver fluke our lot... but DH has been fencing for more food, it's a juggle that one day one be quite so hard, I hope.
Marg believes she has at least a bull with poll/poll (double poll gene), I know she was looking to DNA some of hers, as QLD Uni now have the test for polling, a fantastic break through for those looking at the poll.
A friend of mine bought semen from Marg and is looking to do all his cows that are poll or red, in the hope of building a pure red poll herd... it seems quite a few look at doing this. The dun is more elusive and I'm still looking and hoping for a young dun bull to add to our herd, then we can keep both bulls.
We're fattening a steer (who was quite thin from the move etc etc) and a young bull (not 12 months old, without the head bale couldn't castrate him) at the moment. We've been lucky to be trialling a food that will be used for the organic market, not yet named or released. They are going really well on it and we're looking to both in the freezer in Oct. The steer remarkable is looking quite good now, goodness knows how any of this meat will be with what's happened and the bull but... we'll use it and I do have my good mincer.
