    Alright, I wills start by saying, I know NOTHING about cows. Period. However, my neighbors have a huge field full of them. The field is right behind my house....VERY close to my house in fact. They are a bunch of big black ones...very pretty and we adore them. At night they are always gone somewhere and the only time I have ever seen or heard one at night was twice when there was one making a racket by the fence and the next day they had a new baby. Well, they added a bull a day or two ago....I suppose he is a stud service sort of thing (I HOPE he is not here for long). He is now (at 12:47 AM) standing right outside my bedroom window yelling for his women!!! I guess anyway. It is an awful racket. Don't they take a break from mating to sleep or anything! This is unbelievable!!!!

    Never had a bull make noise like that. The only racket would come from the cows whose calfs had recently been taken to market. The sound would break your heart, and I'd always find an excuse to leave the property at those times. Personally, I'd take a bellowing bull over a searching mother any day [​IMG]

    yes it is common and no its not uncommon for them to be incessant about wanting their needs fulfilled. i have seen it year after yr my whole life being i a cowboy in cattle country its kinda just another thing here but yes it is extremely annoying. hahaha u could go out and rattle some pans or something to drive him away but dont be surprised if it just ticks him off . in my professional opinion hahahaha id just wait it out less dangerous good luck

    I think I'd have to have a talk with the neighbor. I realize that the bull i just being a bull, but I'd have to explain that with every moaning groan, he'd be sounding more and more like a thick, juicy STEAK!!!
