This new born BueLingo is pictured with horn paste. If you don't like horns, it isn't a big deal! Make serious breeding decisions for small birth weights, large weaning weights and mellow dispositions, not a tiny horn button.
At Dickinson Cattle Company Inc (DCCI) of Barnesville, Ohio we specialize in big horned Texas Longhorn and African Watusi cattle. Although it is almost sinful to raise a cattle breed that have no horns, it is one of our tolerated sins. Our Dutch Buelingo are mostly poled, but about 10% have horns. The fact people expect Buelingo to be "defective" in the horn department, we dehorn a few each year.
In many cattle breeds people buy bulls that are poled because they want to avoid the blood and gore of dehorning, and actually pay a lot more for a poled bull. Here at DCCI we buy a 4 oz jar of paste for $5.49 which will remove hundreds of horns for about a penny per horn. It takes a couple minutes. That is it. You can buy it at any good farm supply store.
This 5 month old BueLingo had horn buds removed bloodlessly as a new born. If your taste prefers "horn defective" cattle -- totally nude of beautiful shapely spreads, it will cost you ONE PENNY.
Safe healthy animal care -- that's what it's all about. This isn't new -- my Dad used the same stuff on dairy calves in 1948.
