I know it's going to be a pain to do but I sure wish Colorado would implement some rules and laws like that. We need some rules with some teeth in it to help clean up some of the trash around here.

Utah started this about 10 years ago it was painful at first but i now think it is a very good law if you are caught with a positive bull in a herd of cows the fines are pretty steep and if you are on a forest permit with a positive bull could will buy the cows of your partners at full market price. I will zay this do them in the fall when you wean you calves. I have found they dont difht as much and are a lot easier to handle. O and one othèr thing get a hydraulic chute you will not regret it

Little over 10 years ago outfit in Idaho that ran on the forest with us brought a hot herd of cows out of Utah. That fall one of my youngest most expensive bulls test positive, probably the only calves I got were cows breed before going onto the forest. Never began to recover the price on that bull and also had allot more open and late cows that fall. I wrote the letters to neighbors and those we ran with on the forest like the law said.... never did get one from the others that had positive bulls that fall or next spring. V branded the tail head and sold the bull for slaughter only, makes me wonder how many hot bulls went to the sale barn and the cheap outfits bought a old hot bull.
