Castrating Calves

In her research for realism in her current book in which the hero is a rancher, Fiorella has learned far more about cattle than she ever wanted to know.  Did you know that there are three general methods of castrating the little bulls--knives, bands, and squeezers?

It's usually done when the calves are five to ten weeks old and not only improves the meat, but insures that only the best bulls breed.

Put that information in your factoid file.
