The Big Show / Re: Steer getting taller, but not filling out.

Yep... Just be patient and give him more time to mature.  30lbs a day??? Bowsers!!!

Might just be his growth pattern.  Seems like Angus are more prone to growing frame and having a lanky look until they hit about 10 months of age then will finally muscle up.

Animal Chiropractic is a good option.  Make sure he is getting exercised as well.

No pics but traveling the country doing Chiropractic work I have seen some good ones.  (clapping)

Trust me B, I'm not hiding.  I've asked the breeder to please keep on cloning and making more.  He will have a new one out soon if not already.  MAB bred back to his momma.  All kidding aside, Mab has made plenty of outstanding show calves.  Including the reserve champion red angus in San Antonio this year. ;)

Looks good, what would you say her frame score is?  I have raised a couple and they really didn't have enough grow to be a momma cow for me.  That being said, I was stalled next to a 1440 lb steer in Ft Worth that was a WA.

I like the calf, feed him, worm him, and keep the hoof trimmer away from those back feet until late fall some time.  IMO he will make a good slick shear calve for a school show.  That lottery thing is for the birds...

The Big Show / Re: Large brisket on market steer. Any advice?

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.

Make sure you pay attention to slaughter withdraw....
not sure how much you are showing him, or how hard you are pushing him, but we have had excellent success wth feeding about Purina Precon Complete as 1/2 of the normal feeding of grain, along with 1/2 of the normal grain.   You would be amazed how much this will tighten their stools. It makes it pleaseant to be able to work on them, and clean up after them as well as reducing the mess in the trailer.

The more you take him out the better he will become.  My question would be, are you doing anything different to his diet to prep him for show?  Increase feed, any electrolytes or glucose, ect?  If so that may also be a contributing factor. G-Luck

The Big Show / Re: Best products to help out with pastern issues.
« on: June 09, 2015, 09:48:34 AM »
I don't think there is a product to help with the issue.  As you mentioned a good hoof trimmer might help.  That being said, I like a little extra set.  Judges are so used to looking at straight cattle some of them may have issue with it but most will not.  My only concern would be does he drop hook to pin on the move?  If he keeps a level hip when walking I would be even less concerned with the issue.  On the other hand if he does drop hook to pin on the move I think more judges will have issues with him.  As mentioned above a video would be nice.

The Big Show / Re: Calf with kicking problem...
« on: June 09, 2015, 09:41:36 AM »
You mentioned he is now 1100lbs.  Other than holding his tail, what has been done up to this point to break him of kicking.  I can give advice but it would help to know what has been tried already.
