Pulling your herd bull, and replacing it with another may have further negative results on the dominant bulls weight.
One year I pulled a bull and replaced him with a younger one, toward the end of breeding season. The dominant bull spent the remainder of breeding season pacing the fence and not eating. He was a skeleton that I had trouble putting weight back on to.
