Giant Brown Swiss Steer
"He weighed about 2,750 lbs. last year. We haven't been able to weigh him recently but I'm sure he weighs at least 2,850 lbs., by now" says Schwengler, who doesn't know anything about Jethro's parentage since he bought him from a third party.
According to Schwengler, Jethro is a gentle steer who lives on pasture with his other beef cattle. "He's super friendly and loves a good scratch. We sometimes feed him grain from a bucket to keep him tame. He has been a great family pet," says Schwengler. "I plan to halter break him so we can take him to local parades. Eventually I hope that someone will be able to ride him."
