Thanks for the concern and i understand your reasons. My reason for doing this is because the guy i bought the steer from told me that he had problems with this calf bloating on his show/creep ration which is corn, oats, cottonseed hulls and protein pellet. So he put him on a corn, corn gluten and protein ration and for 2 months straight never had any problem. I brought him home and put him on my ration which is corn,oats,cottonseed,& Purina 4-t fyer. He was fine for about 2 weeks and then he bloated. So i was thinking that it may be the cottonseed hulls or the oats( which are whole and I'm going to try steam flaked now)because he did not do it on his corn ration. And also the seller is aware of my problem and has told me to bring him back for a full refund but i told him that i was not done trying to figure him out yet. So additional help or thoughts would be helpful!
