Monopoly Money/ I-80 steer
« on: February 01, 2019, 06:28:16 PM »
Here are some pictures of my Monopoly Money calf.
What do y'all think of him? I try to blow in some double dip and some Green Stuff twice a day and will rice root and work legs with roto brush. Also will try to wash whenever there's a  warm day ( which is very uncommon this time  of year😪)Any suggestions/ comments about anything else I should be doing ?

Nice steer, it looks like youre doing a really good job with him! When you show him youll want him set up like he is in the second picture- when his hind legs are stretched (first picture) it makes his tailhead look quite high and when his head is too high (third picture) it makes him look masculine. When you clip him youll want to take his crest down really tight to make him look longer necked and less bully. As he gains weight he should belly down but hopefully others will chime in with feeding advice to get more depth. Good work and welcome to Steer Planet!

Thanks Larissa for all the advice...it is very helpful. I am feeding him 5 lbs of Purina ultra full each day and it has helped alot with his flank, but he still needs more belly 😐

I agree with Larissa, you are doing a nice job with him.

Give him all the hay he will eat, and as Larissa said, when he gets fat he will get more belly.

Keep up the good work.

 I-80 not known for steers but color me impressed. Pump the feed and hopefully that rump will fill in

Your hard work is showing with this calf.

Well done!
