|Actually we've done some research on this and found that there are steer sticks which are made from the penis of a steer (castrated). They still have their penis, but it doesn't get as much, um, exercise as a bull penis so that is why they are not as hard when dried. I can't remember whereall I read this, but a couple of different companies had it on their websites explaining the differences between the two.
Also, some bully sticks smell, others don't smell as much. The reason they smell is because they were not washed as thoroughly before drying. The idea of dried pee and whatever in there doesn't bother me and my dogs love it, but if you want a less smelly treat, look for the ones that talk about how much they are washed before drying.
Both are equally long (3 ft or so uncut), but the bully sticks are harder to chew through than the steer sticks. We get ours at costco, $20 for 12 bully sticks (foot long ones!) that are free range!
