Lubrisyn or better supplements for a calf?!
« on: February 20, 2014, 09:35:40 AM »
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with lubrisyn and knows if it works? I have a calf that is amazing out of Walks Alone and he walks out great when he's been moving for awhile but when he first gets up it seems like he ligaments are a tick tight. He slightly turns out one front leg( which depends on whatever one he lays on that day) and when he gets up to start moving he looks a touch over in his knee. He has huge joints along with a giant top, just overall a big thick calf. I want to get him on something now so it helps a lot by the time he goes in our sale. Please let me know of anyone knows the best supplement to fix this!!!!

I'm not sure feeding a young calf supplements to give the illusion that he is sound until the new owner gets him is such a good idea. To me a big jointed calf that is over in his knee will not get better with age and weight and is just that, a calf. Neat and stout as he may be I think the right thing to do is to feed him like the rest and let the chips fall.

Cowgirls94,
I agree with Dakotacow.
To me that would be just like a professional athlete taking steroids.

As a cow/calf operation I am more concerned with why your calf is that way.
Have you had a vet look st him?
Or spoken to the seller/breeder who sold you the calf?

Can you smell what I have been standing in?
