    In 1978 I was almost killed by a jersey bull that had the best blood lines at that time but we shipped him that day. Nothing worth injuries or death (for others to deal with). This incident has left me very cautious around livestock. I have worked with dairy cattle for 60 years but have the ability to work smoothly with them. I’m 75 now with not so good knees so I’m even more cautious. We have 3 milk cows and 5 beef brood cows, 3 young steers, 3 young beef
    heifers.
