go to wal mart and buy a can of shaving cream. rub it in the hair and and brush the hair upwards. after that take your blower and blow it in. works great for training the hair, thickening it up, and making it grow. i have no clue how it works but an old friend of mine Ed Duncan taught me it and it works wonders.

really nice looking steer. he could use some more in his middle third. if i were you id start feeding him all the beat pulp and depth charge he will eat! But still a  nice steer.

Only a demand for the very top end cattle? no.. not at all haha and DiamondMCattle i don't know where you are located but around here ( southern Indiana ) Hereford heifers are winning shows every bit as much as cross bred heifers if not more. the past ten years the Hereford breed has improved so much its inane. Back then they could never beat the cross bred cattle, but every year they are winning more and more.

very nice cow. i would breed her to about time also. he has given me great calves the past couple years.  another good option would be revolution 4r. he really makes a pretty calf. one bull you may consider is bright future. the calf would most likely be extremely powerful. maybe not quite as good in its front third as an about time or revolution but it would have more power and mass.

his back is like that because of the ground or something it is normally pretty straight.

thanks for the help guys. our foot trimmer is very good and we havent ever had this problem with him. this was the steers first foot trimming and he is just very tender i think. we have him in soft bedding where he can walk around as he pleases. he is beginning to walk better on the soft surface but when he gets on anything hard he stiffens back up. anybody know if i can get any pills or shot or anything to speed up the healing process???

The Big Show / calf dead.
« on: April 03, 2012, 03:16:36 PM »
i had a calf born a couple weeks ago and it was out of a first calf heifer. we had to pull him. when he came out it appeared as if his head may have been swollen. we gave him some colostrum and eventually he started to nurse and we thought everything would be fine unlike most calves he had a big belly. we let him out into the pasture with the rest of the calves like 5 days ago went out yesterday around noon and he looked bloated but not to bad.. later on we went out to check on the calves and we was bloated.  we gave him medicine and put a hose down his throat but it didnt help. the next morning he was dead. any idea what happened to cause him to bloat? we have never had a calf not on creep and getting just a little milk bloat before.
