entire bulls will grow much quicker than castrated. they will do you no harm at the ages you are talking about.

you will get a better yield from angus cross calves. couldnt tell you the figures, but we had jerseys, jersey cross alsorts thrrough he butchery.

you dont gt alot for 20 quid these days so you cant complain at that price.

Well they are here  ::)  It has reminded me how small the Jerseys where at this age and how crazy they go when they see the bottle  ::)

Glad they arrived ok. It sounds like they must've settled in quick enough to demand food  :D
