On Thursday, Gary and I went to the Stull Ranch, and I bought a bull from Trae Stull. In addition to raising registered bulls, registered cows, and rodeo stock, Trae is also the local brand inspector. That big belt buckle he's wearing he won roping at the Logan County Fair. As far as being a real cowboy, I think Trae is bona fide.
We had to sell Ali, one of our favorite bulls, this year after he suffered some broken ribs and pneumonia. Since one bull can service thirty to forty head of cows over a normal breeding period, we need to have two bulls given the size of our herd. This bull below will join Duece in a month or so, and is scheduled to start work around May 15. It's nice work if you can get it. Welcome to the ranch, big boy.
