FAIR IS FIRST FULL WEEK OF AUGUST. DAILY ROUTINE IS MORE OF A WEEKLY ROUTINE. I DON'T HAVE A "SHOW" CALF YET BUT THERE STILL SUCKING OUT IN THE FEILD. THOSE CALVES ARE OUT OF A PURBRED MAINE (clapping) ANYWAY THE STEER NOW IS JUST WASHED WITH MAIN AN' TAIL S & C. BRUSHED UP AND FORWARD AT 45 DEGREES OR SO. THIS WEEK I DIDN'T BLOW DRY. HE IS HAIRY ON THE BACKSIDE AND ON THE FRONT SHOULDER BUT THATS IT. I NOTICED RIGHT NOW THE HAIR FELT HEAVIER AND THE LEGS ARE STARTIN' TO GROW.cowz said:Farmboy, Red gave you some great advice. When is your fair? How much time do we have? Do what Red says: everyday, hose down that leg hair and brush it towards the head of the steer and up.
From the sounds of your rules....Dont play the twine game. It sounds like the most you could possibly do is spray a light coat of adhesive on the "pulled up" legs...and make sure you remove it asap after the show. Sounds like they had a problem in the past with kids not removing glue after the show. This is painful and irritating to the animal. For every new rule you get at shows, you have the problem person that created a need for it :'(
Let us know what your routine is and maybe we can offer you some ideas.
