So we have been seriously lacking home-grown beef recently (see my other blog). So we made steps to remedy this problem today.We purchased a Highland bull (Gumby) and also got a Highland cow (Greta) in the deal. Above is them being brought to their new home. Below is them meeting their new pasture mates.
But then Dillweed, our Dexter steer, kept fighting with the Highland bull. He was trying to lock horns with him, even though he does not have any horns. So we had to move Dillweed out of field too so he did not get hurt. And finally there was peace in the valley.
So we thought anyway. Tonight Dillweed is still hollering at the bull through the fence. The original idea was that we would butcher Gumby after breeding, but now we are considering butchering Dillweed instead.
