Anyone know of how we can stop this and get her hair growing fast??

 We had a show planned in mid March but I don't think we are going now because of this.

M.T.G. (Mane Tail Groom) is what i use to get hair growing back, its a horse hair product, smells like burnt bacon, but it works.....rub it on the spots, and you'll see hair growing back really quick

I would get her clipped tight ASAP too.  Noticed this with my sale bulls this year with the mild winter,,brought them in and peeled heads and necks,and rubbing stopped.  Good luck

I second what HF CHARS said, and spray the spots with revive about twice a week. That will soften the skin up and hair will start to grow back.

Hi Jeff!This might be stupid, but is there a chance she might have lice? Python powder usually does a good job, even if the pour on won't. Also add vitamins A, D & E to feed.
Just another cheesehead who loves cattle!

My first thought when reading your post. We've had calves losing patches of hair on their shoulders also and the cause was lice. Pour them consistently a the pour's recommended intervals to make sure you thoroughly treat it.
