I have always has angus cattle and started switching over to longhorns a few years ago, I have two Steers ready to butcher at the end of month. My guy that does my slaughtering here on my farm is concerned with using his normal procedure which is using a 22 mag to the forehead and cutting the jugular to bleed them out. The question is will the 22 penetrate the forehead area sufficiently or is it extra thick because of the horns? Thanks Mark

Is this a serious question? Even a .17hmr works fine!
