Default Bullers

Yes does anyone out there know of any good remedies for Bullers? I have worked in a Feed Yard for almost 17 yrs. and we have Bullers all the time.

Default Bullers

Buller bars can be built and installed in the feed pens. Buller bars are a pipe structure that allow the animal being harassed to walk under and prevents others from mounting. In heifers, MGA can be fed to supress cyclicity. MGA is basically Progesterone. If it is just one one or two animals, what about pulling them out? I believe some steers may actually emit female pheramones, which causes others to chase and harass them.
