No, Bennie Beutler had been hauling him and let us use him after he retired. Back in those days, it was a lot easier to get old bulls to breed with, since very few people were raising bulls.jake @ Jun 25 2012, 08:22 PM wrote: did you buy -59 at Plummer sale ?
I don't worry about it very much when they're that young, almost all of them try to lay down or get rowdy in there. They're just extremely nervous and all of it is new to them.Oklabulls @ Jun 25 2012, 08:22 PM wrote: What are some things that you do if a weanling bull is bad about laying down in chute? He's only been bucked once as a weanling. He also lays down in squeeze chute.
There's some things a person could do, but a young bull shouldn't need any tricks. If he does, he's definitely not going to last and probably needs culled.Summerrain @ Jun 25 2012, 08:23 PM wrote: Jerry do you have any tricks to get a young bull to turn back?
At that age, you may be forced to open the gate while they're laying - yes, just slow gate them and don't let them turn out backwards - they'll have to stand up to leave.Oklabulls @ Jun 25 2012, 08:38 PM wrote: If they are laying down after you get dummy on them.

Unless you can go in the pen and pet them, I'd say you're fine - if they had the juice in them at one time, they should still have the juice in them when they buck. Settling down is almost always a good thing.Sharon @ Jun 25 2012, 08:35 PM wrote: hey, I feed all the bulls, they young ones (weanling) were wild as a march hair, I have got them settled down, got them coming in the pen, Charlie says I made them too gentle, I told him at least they're not running into the pipe, do think I could get them too gentle to buck? they bucked good when we bucked them.
