The best "beef" strogonoff that I served up was made from an older goat.

I have been reading this but didn't realise that the original post was actually posted 5 months ago and you persevered with the wretch. I got Jennifer in 2019 when she was just over 5 weeks old (Hereford x calf) she was ockered from day one, but I persevered! She was looked after, halter trained, kept quiet. She kicked me earlier this year for no reason. I kicked her back. She kicked me harder. She was TB tested with another and sold the following week.

You're braver than me if you put up with it for 5 months. I have no help, mum is more decrepit than ever and so I now have the mentality, hurt me, you're gone!
Halter train the cattle to keep them quiet but watch your back when they come a'bulling! Give them all names even those you plan to eat. Always be calm. Most importantly, invest in wellies with steel toe caps and be prepared for the clever cow who knows where the toe caps end!!
