How do you tame a young bull? The same way you tame a wild man, with food! When we first separated the bulls and heifers, they were a tad bit wild. The minute you walked into the pen, they would bolt to the opposite end. But they soon learn you bring food and good tidings when you enter the pen and started calming down. Now they wait at the gate for me. But if anyone new comes around, they bolt just like they did in the beginning.
We've bonded a lot over the past few months. When it's just me and the bulls, they are very calm. I started feeding one by hand awhile back. Then more become interested until now almost all of them eat out of my hand. The husband is NOT happy about it but we won't tell him, right?!
I thought you would like to see how I tamed the wild beasts. I set the camera up on the truck today to take some video. Sorry it's a little lop-sided.
