Haha!!! I agree with stangs. Add a couple fans in there too!!! If u think about it after u have bout 3 buckets of shag or epic you can easily buy a new turbo fan with a mister to boot!!!

I've heard wheat germ is working to add some hair quality.

He is a GF Kadabra steer out of a Maine Angus cow.I am feeding him calf manna supplement that i have always fed, and I am rinsing him two times a day, he is under fans, and I am also using a conditioner once a week on him, and spraying him down with a laser sheen mixture at night. He has always had a real rich black color. I just want to get a good THICK coat of hair on him... Oh, I am brushing him ALL the time too with a stimulator/fluffer Sullivan's scotch comb and a synthetic brush. I don't have a rice root brush.

I will get a pic of him..

Sounds like you are doing everything right. Just get a rice root brush worked in your program and that'll get the hair goin even better.

If you are doing all of that, you probably aren't going to see much more hair, hair is 90% genetics and if he doesn't have the genetics for thick hair all of the supplements in the world aren't going to make it thick.

I have a limousin heifer that proves this wrong, but she seems to be one of a kind. Her parents had no hair to the point of looking slick sheared, and they are in south east texas. She was also born and raised down her, and she was pretty darn shaggy with supplements, and hard work. NO hair genetics at all. When we picked up this new calf that does have the genetics it was pretty amazing how much hair she grew so fast. And with a lot of work she is going to be super shaggy.

Well, since we are in such a hot area, and we show heifers, we go aheaqd and slick shoulders and heads down, and it helps keep them cooler, since the neck and shoulder area gives off a lot of heat. As well as there chest floors.

I would not clip him all that often. The more often you clip the more hair you will be taking off. So then when it comes to really clipping him out you'll have less hair to work with in the end. Ive only clipped my steers out once or twice this summer.

I know Kleen Sheen isn't the cheapest, but I've found it works pretty good for me. Just mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with vinegar.

HT Id like to see a picture of him, and stangs, yours too if you can get a picture.

Here is a pic. Its not good. It was taken in the morning when he was brought up. He hasnt been rinsed in the pic, and is a tad dirty from the night out. But other than that and my bad photography skills. Here he is. please excuse the manure behind him.(he was just brought in about 2 weeks ago) He is for sale if anyone is intrested
