The Big Show / Steer not eating at all!! Only 90dys till fair HELP!
« on: April 20, 2013, 06:16:06 PM »
My Amen calf is extremely picky about what he eats... he eats lots of hay and drinks plenty of water but has not been eating our show feed ration. We have tried switching him to Show Corn, adding regular flaked corn, addding Karo syrup and Molasses,adding alfalfa and winning fill we have tried EVERYTHING it

 seems like and he just eats a bite or two then stops. Ive tried putting him with the other calf while eating to add some competition but he doesnt care at all. He isnt sick either his head is up and perky and has recently had a shot of ResFlor Gold and we just gave him a shot of MultiMin 90. What should i do? I

only have 90 days till fair and he is 1115lbs. and needs alot more finish any suggestions about what to feed him to get finish or to get him eating the grain again?????

we dont know exactly what it was but we brought a new heifer in the pen and we think she gave something to him so the vet gave him sustain 3 and resflor gold just in case he had any respitory problems

lot better and is eating hay and drinking but he will not touch the grain and its been like that for 3 days. We've gave him apetite booster paste and  tried taking out all the additives and just feeding little bits at at

time and he still wont touch it. Is there any tricks at all to get him to eat?? PLEASE HELP ME!

The Big Show / Re: BEST ROGERS BULLS
« on: February 25, 2013, 11:01:39 PM »
In my opinion I agree that there is a alot of really good bulls out there but I do tend to lean torn Rodgers and Lautners bulls when we choose our bulls because we like what they have to offer. And Carlson good for you for asking questions but never second guess your first instinct is what ive learned from this business. Im only 19 and I am now picking bulls to breed to our cows and hired to choose bulls for another clubby producer. Best thing to do is look at each cow individually... See what they lack and find a bull that has what that cow lacks. Never stop asking questions but never second guess yourself over and over again on one cow... Go with your gut! Hope this helps ya just my opinion....
