wow beer is not the anwser

It's what fitters use for a steadier hand
The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

the first time you go to a show and the kid stalled next to you is pumping a calf and goes to far you would never consider doing it or want to see it again. The kid thought he was going to win ended up not even making it to the ring and almost killed the calf. Calf went down in the chute and 20 people barely got the chute apart before the calf choked to death on the cross bar( part of the reason the cross bar on the head catch is lower now). When he got up couldn't walk and peed blood. 5 gallons of water was enough to almost kill the steer.

Pump with something carbonated lol

Or beer!  (clapping)

I try my very hardest not to make negative comments on SP, but wasn't their a post on here a year or so ago about a cow that was pumped with a carbonated beverage and died from suffocation.?  I would be reluctant to suggest that to anyone.  Lets try, as people who raise and love cattle and the industry to not give PETA, or any other similar organization fuel for their fire.

I know at Agribition in Saskatchewan in 2010, a Charolais died shortly after leaving the show ring from being pumped full of ginger ale or beer, I can't remember what it was.

Wow, self inflicted bloat.  Amazing.

It was 7-UP

Depth charge, winning fill and wet beet pulp with molasses. And a good show feed and all the hay they want

How about not doing at all?

wow beer is not the anwser

Obviously... The whole pumping thing is a joke... Don't do it unless you have experience, and I wouldn't do it just for a county fair

Pumping is illegal at all majors in Texas, and at most county shows. The only shows that I know allow it are the Belt Buckle Bonanza and the Fall Classic.

We have never pumped a heifer or steer and never will. If the animal needs that done to win then we will just lose!

As for the OP: Winning Fill, Alfalfa Hay, Natural Fill, and Beet Pulp are good choices.
