    Quote:Yes, yes, yes Bulls beyond the age of a year and a half (sometimes younger) can become very dangerous, even if you work with them every day. Steers are gentle forever, if you spend time with them.

    Ok, so all the stories that i've heard are of people riding STEERS. what if I do end up buying a female bottle baby calf? Will I still be able to train her to ride? Or are steers better used for riding?

    Yes, cows can be ridden too, however I do not recommend riding too beefy of breeds or dairy breeds. They're just not built for it.
