>>these are animals that headbutt the 1.5" box steel bars in the corrals a few hundred times a day... like hitting a pelt-covered cinder block.

Yeah... I would not feel too bad for the calf. There is a farm next door to my new property... drove up earlier in the year and there were a bunch of very young... um... cattle milling around. They looked really cute. I pulled over to the side of the road and they wandered over... then started running... then a couple of them lowered their heads... and they were pretty damn BIG by the time they got near my car.

If anyone wants to know how fast a Dodge Magnum can go backwards, I might be able to help
