Best way to grow hair without a cooler
« on: December 20, 2016, 01:32:07 PM »
I know it will be a while until it warms up again, but I live in NC, and we don't have a cooler. I need a way to grow as much hair as possible on a shorthorn plus steer, and a crossbred heifer without a cooler (I know, a cooler is the best method by far). Any suggestions? I am considering using a misting system and they will be in the barn, in the dark from around 6 am to 10 pm.

Back in the day, I would rinse mine a lot when the weather was anywhere close to warm. And brush, brush, brush, brush. (thumbsup)
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cattle and that's pretty much the same thing as far as I'm concerned!

Simmental and SimAngus bulls available year-round!

Dark barn
Melatonin implants
Feed supplements that lower body temp
Frequent rinsing and working hair with a brush
Fans
As cool ambient temp as possible

All help, but are not guaranteed to put hair on

Genetics make a huge difference.

This heifer had none of the above.  Pic taken after
First rinse.

Do you know if a No Worries x HAHN Lot One (Purebred Shorthorn) has the genetics to? I would like he could grow a decent amount.

I've seen your repetitive posts on the big show looking for a cooler asking about genetics as well as this post

Where is your show? You live in north Carolina? YES the calf has the genetics to grow hair suitable enough to do well you need to spend less time worrying about a cooler and the calfs genetics and more time blowing rinsing and brushing the calf. That's where your time is best spent because you've already bought the calf so hos genetics can't change (while I agree its good to know the background and potential of one. Once they're bought it's not changing)

Blow 5 times more than you think you should. Brush 3x more than you think you should and scrub the heck out of his legs

You seem new to the process and I'll be the one to let you know. 1. Welcome to steer planet 2. A cooler is not an end all be all to grow hair on cattle. And it is entirely possible to win a competitive haired show with a calf under lots of fans (or porta cools) that's rised often and blown even more

Condition 3 times a week put a silver dollar size blob in a bucket fill up bucket dump on back and scrub it (mane and tail) and rub a handfull on each leg

After you're done blowing blow some sheen on him or oil if it's the evening and then blow some more

That's a start hope it helps.

  Very good heifer LLBUX. I've been tempted to try a little Galloway juice but I worry about them being too hairy and hot for our summers. Do they go stand in the creeks and ponds like the THC clubbies?

Erbarrett12 thanks for lowering my karma after I tried to take the time to offer advice

We have been putting in embryos all day and I didn't have time to type everything out for a full program to follow but I apologize for you getting your feelings hurt

Guess now I realize why everyone is hesitant to help you

My cows enjoy standing in water as I have limited shade.

I have had no trouble with heat on my Belties. I did
have a Hannibal/Heatseeker cow that always struggled
in the heat. She was probably TH, though I never checked.

Some Belties have more hair than others. Half bloods show
diminished hair length, but many still maintain the double coat.

My sister also loves to get on my account, and she is VERY sensitive. She could have done it. Point is, she didn't mean it. And I am grateful for your help.

I suggest you change your password so your sister

Our Galloways cattle handled the heat and humidity ( 100+ heat indexes) better than the neighboring Angus and Simmental herds.  Ours were out grazing while the neighbors herds were bunched in the corners fighting flies.  There was a pond available and only the few head of Angus we had used it.
Galloways- The breed to produce the hardier crossbred cow.
