Polled hereford angus no...... a polled shorthorn yes we still shape.
It's suppose to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.

ugh. a polled head is perceived as needing to be further shaped.


at some level, it's a shame that show bulls aren't all homo polled at this point.


i get it that the polled gene can supposedly make them appear weaker in their rear end.


still, it's sad that as an industry that after all these years, polled isn't more pervasive.


hardly anyone uses old continental import bulls which are mostly horned and it's been 40+ years since they were imported.


obviously also, the polled herefords have struggled to make their cattle look as good and powerful as the horned ones as a whole.

Other than the polled hereford that just onee hereford and really several polled herefords here in texas. Ill leave it with this texas show do things different. I appreciate the folks that tried to help and get me to someone that could help get these calves to fave heads dehorned and shapped. However as usual turned into something totally of topic.

I understand why people want to shape heads, even if polled.

and understand the helping issue.

at some level, it's just sad as well that it still occurs.

seems so 1980's. yes, i used to do it as detailed.

rough job. some people are just really good at it.
