Show calf diarreha
« on: June 07, 2015, 05:37:37 PM »
Every time we take our steer to a one day show we will wash him and put him in the grooming chute and then he will have a massive amount of diarrhea empty out in the grooming chute.  Is there anything we can give him the day before so he won't do that.  I would guess it is probably from being nervous.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We always give an oral probiotic of some kind every time we loaf a calf on the trailer. We may also give a dose of sustain III the day before we go.

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

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.
