For "generic" sacrifices a steer might do fine, but remember, the better the animal, the bigger boost it gives your ritual, so a Pure-color Bull or a Cow that always produces twins is better than a scrawny yearling steer. Thinking of it, you probably wouldn't castrate a bull *intended* for sacrifice.
