Large brisket on market steer. Any advice?
« on: June 14, 2015, 08:31:13 PM »
     Hello,  I have a market show steer with a fairly large brisket. Is there a way to shrink it? Would a neck sweat help or would that only shape the neck? The next show is in the end of August so I'm hoping I can try and fix it before then. Any advice would be very appreciated! Thank you!

You could try fresh and femine from Sullivan's
I have never used it and I have never used a neck sweat either
If it's just skin a neck sweat would tighten it up a little but I don't believe there is to much you can do

I will follow Spencer on this.  I have personally never used Fresh and Feminine, however I have gotten good reports from a couple of people that I trust.

Fresh and Feminine really works well.  The only drawback is that it will harden one up a little.  Not such a big deal when you use it when you're crashing a big bred heifer in the spring, but you'll want to make sure your steer doesn't lose too much belly.  Id still probably feed it, but make sure you're not losing too much condition and center body.  Make sure he gets enough exercise too.
