Dove Yes, he is from a Hereford Bull, by AI. We will keep him until he goes in the beef ring at market. Some of the Hereford X heifers we might be keeping as our son wants to do sucklers.

Thought so   we used to keep Hereford x bullocks on the small-holding - four at a time - always called Eeeny Meeny Miny and Mo - fabulous beef

Sadly there'll always be someone around who thinks they have the right to tell people how to live their lives, the same as there'll always be some racist bigots - it's good to be aware and make sure that we're prepared to stand up and be counted when ugliness like that rears its head.
