I bought a male calf the other day. he's 80 pounds 8 days old. I want to raise him for the freezer. Question is.

Does he need to be cut/banded if I"m going to have him slaughtered at 8 to 900 pounds?

The folks that sold him to me, have slaughtered one in the past and had not been castrated and the meat was fine but they slaughtered at 800 pounds there abouts.
