Hi there, I am new here. My steer this year has unusually loose stools. He is not on grain yet, so I know it's not a protein issue. He has a big appetite and is not lethargic. Just wondering how I could help him and what might be wrong. Thanks.

Might try deworming him with a different mode of action wormer. A few years ago a neighbor had a similar problem of loose stools calf just not quite performing. He had been using avermectin class dewormers, I went over and helped him treat the calf with prohibit that solves the problem. I recommend him to rotate his dewormers.

What is the calf eating, if grazing fresh winter annuals and forages with high water content that can cause loose stools
