The steer we have has gotten away from us and has to much cover on him. We switched him to a oats base with shape instead of winning fill what else can we do to peel the fat off in 30 days till county fair

We are also 30 days out from our county and are having to hold ours.  We are walking 30-45 minutes every morning and cutting back on feed and giving more med. quality hay.  He's a Heatwave and if we can keep him from popping when he walks, he's gonna be hard to beat.

You might want to talk to your local Purina dealer. I believe one of their Power Fuel supplements might be able to help you.  Good luck!

Just like us, diet and exercise.

3 pounds of beet pulp, 3 pounds of oats, 3 pounds of feed, and 1 pound of calf-manna or soy pellets twice a day and walk him early morning and late evening. Bermuda hay.

If you really want to put the breaks on him,4 beet pulp, 4 oats, one calf manna ( or soy pellets ) and 1/2 pound stabilized rice bran. Twice a day, exercise and grass hay.

Need the protein and some fat to keep them fresh looking.
