    Opinions on steer

    He looks really small, and has a very high tailhead… but otherwise he looks ok. Good luck!

    Show steer doesn’t want to walk in show ring

    Feed him in the show ring a couple tomes. That’ll fix it for sure.

    Does Corn 'Burn Hair Off' Cattle?

    The only thing I can think is that corn supposedly makes them warmer, which would in turn make them shed. But I feed corn in my ration and it doesn't cause a problem.

    Anyone else?

    It is not just you!! We've had cows in the neighbors yard before. :p The worst time is when we were almost to a horse show and we had to scratch and go home to put cows in. THAT was disappointing.

    Bull calf for beef

    You cannot raise the bull till he is breeding age and then band him. At that age you can not castrate a bull; they won't breed till at least 18 months of age.

    Steer Feeding Tips?

    I recently am getting into steers and have been experimenting a bit with feed mixes... I used a corn/oats/beet pulp/cottonseed hulls/molasses mix, with lots of hay, and after the steer reached about 900# he got sort of a pot belly. What did I do wrong? I would really appreciate hearing what...
