“With the enhanced performance from bull calves left intact, he doesn’t need to use growth implants, which means his cattle qualify for natural beef programs. “If I’m doing delayed castration, I don’t need to use hormones, and I definitely don’t want to implant my heifers because I retain the top end of them or sell them to someone else as replacements.”

“We usually try to get the calves started on feed and then I band them and it doesn’t slow them up a bit. I leave my bull calves intact to about 600 pounds, which means they stay healthier and perform better.”
