What does he weigh?  What are you feeding and how many lbs per feeding? How much hay is he eating?

He weights almost 800. he is prob like 775. he is getting about 15lbs of rival beast every day. i dont really give him hay. He is a here i am. He has sooooo much hair but that is nothing if he does not look good underneath. he also does not have much of a gut. he is very shallow.

Is he cleaning up his feed? Add a scoop of purina precon to feed. Also,  Give him two squares hay in the morning and two at night.

Here I Am steers can be a little weiner bellied.

He will get some middle as he gets fat.

Give him hay...free choice...all he wants.

HIGH TROUGH DISEASE! Needs 3 to 4% of his body weight each day. No more than 11 to 12% protein on grain and add enough rice bran for 5% fat.
