The Big Show / Re: show steer has loose stools
« on: August 24, 2015, 06:11:00 PM »
Have ran into this issue.
Tried several things but the only thing that kept the calf solid was sulfur boluses.
Two of a morning and two of an evening.
Our calf was fine, all test came back clear and did not run a fever.
We quit worrying about the looseness and just fed him out. Ended up gaining over 3.25 lbs a day the month before fair on the way to a reserve grand champion finish.

We started the bolus regiment the week before the fair and ran it half way through the fair. Stopped on a Wednesday and he was still solid Saturday sale morning. 

You might consider grinding the bolus up and just adding them to the feed.
Older grass/rough hay may help as long as it's good and not moldy

Good luck

We had a Walks Alone Steer a few years back, similar situation.
Tried several methods, ended up getting him shown but it was the most gut wrenching fair week we ever had.
It's no fun for anybody when you know you have one that has a history of going off in a blink of an eye.
He ended up being County Born and Raised Champion, daughter won senior showmanship and we all was glad when he went on the trailer after the sale.
 I can't say we ever got the spirit out of him but one thing is for sure he took some spirit out of us.
I use to think there wasn't one out there that we couldn't put the work in to get them tamed down, now I have a different prospective.
After two weeks of working them if they have not improved they get shipped, we call it the A.S.A. Rule (the name of the walks alone steer, daughter didn't want to call him ASS.)

I could go into several stories about this calf....

In the end I think the majority of his issues had to do with poor vision.
Late in the project we noticed a very small ulcer at the bottom of his left side eye.
I think this explained why certain things (like truck doors slamming) wouldn't bother him but take a miss step or kick a pebble while walking him and he would go off.

Also we have a friend who is into horses and he suggested using an all natural supplement they used on their horses for stomach ulcers. His point was as nervous as the calf was it had to be causing distress in his stomach which he felt was compounding the issue.
I can't think of the products name right now, it was Papayas based. Any way we started him on that about two weeks out from fair and it seemed to smooth his edge out to a degree.

Best of luck to you and keep us posted on how it goes

NAILE use to put an NA brand on the jaw of the steers after weigh in and teeth were checked.

This didn't even stop the swapping of steers with in the grounds of NAILE as several jocks had their own NA brands out in the tieouts and would just swap out the steer they checked in that met requirements with another steer that they wanted to show but couldn't pass the teeth check.

Have also heard stories of the EX brand being spray painted on cattle to give the judge the impression the animal was from the EX ranch.

Can you  post a photo of the leg?

My first and strongest suggestion is DO NOT DRAIN IT,

Have only heard of negative results from having joints drained.

We had a steer a few years
<-----------------(Red Steer in my photo)
ago developed some fluid in his rear hocks at about the same weight. It never got any worse. He topped out at 1345 and walked just fine.
When we pulled up the leg hair we clipped that area a little closer and you couldn't see it at all.
