I grew up on 12 sections in Central TX. I would highly recommend NOT burning him. It will be VERY difficult to burn him to the point where he will not have rotting tissue still left. You could burn him if you have tremendous amounts of diesel or gas, but dead wood is the only thing that we ever tried that truly worked well and you have to have alot of wood to pile on him. It would be cheaper to hire or rent equipment to bury him, which is the way we went on the rare occasion an animal died before entering the show ring. Some people say "its just an animal," but when your around them enough to know what their personality is like you hate to see them go.gregr1971 said:Bad thing is, my 3yr old beefmaster bull suffered the same hit from another peice, cut the tendons in his ankle completely in half, he lost a lot of blood, we did what we could to stop it untill the vet opened up YESTERDAY, well we just lost him, 2000lb of meat GONE, 1400.00 vet bill, GONE, lots of calfs- GONE!
My wife bottle fed that boy, raised him up, and she is out there some kind of upset!
I assume my only option is to burn him??
How could i recoup my losses? home owners? FEMA? Income Tax?
I have no idea how i am going to move that big ole bull out of the barn!
