This is one area where the breed makes all the difference in the world! Right now, the trend for limis and lim-flex is a natural looking switch, just trimmed up and shaped with a clipper into kind of a subtle bell -little to no adhesive used. Also, it seems to be on trend to leave the switch on bulls significantly longer than with a heifer or steer. Not sure if this is a good thing or not, it can really add a lot of visual years on the wrong bull.
Just another cheesehead who loves cattle!

I think the current trend that is most widespread is not the old school ball, but a bell.  But definately takes some ratting and a good helping of adhesive.
