Dangerous

Post by Illinois Farmer » Mon Jun 29, 2020 2:06 am

If you even want to know how dangerous heifers can be, you should have seen what just happened loading cattle tonight. My brother can't walk at the moment, got kicked and stepped on. My dad has a bloody mouth, arm, and a huge gash on his knee from a heifer running through a metal gate and clearing him out in the process. I just hurt my shoulder somehow.

My brother's ankle is permanently buggered up because of sheep. Working with animals is risky business.

Yes it is. Sheep and hogs I can usually man handl, but a 1400 heifer... no thanks ha. I have been ran over by sheep and hogs as well. I had a ram that used to buck a lot until I started wrestling him to the ground, then he quit.

When I was young we were feeding the dairy cows a round bale one morning after milking, the bull got excited and decided to headbutt the hay bale around the paddock like a beachball... I realised there and then we don't have a chance against these animals. Been fortunate to avoid injury on the farm, its the machinery that does more damage than animals. If a cow doesn't get you an ATV could.
