As title am splitting bull calves an heifer calves into separate batches as calves coming 6mths plus. To keep stocking numbers similar was wondering on running year an half old bullocks with bull calve group. plan on removing bull an all cows hopefully back n calf. Is there any potential problems by doin this?
