Trimming your calf’s hooves is a large part of caring for show cattle and will ultimately impact how you do in the show ring. As you plan for your upcoming show season, remember to find the hoof trimmer that best works for you and the schedule that will work best for your calf. Your calf will be sounder, and you will be more successful on show day because of it.
How can we keep our steer or heifer eating and drinking at the show? In this post we will cover some basics of how we can deal with this problem while on the road.
A finisher feed helps put cover, or finish, on your steer. This means that you are putting the final layer of fat and marbling on your animal. While winning is important, so is producing a quality carcass.
Calf grower is the second step of a success show calf feed program. It is designed to be very palatable in order to encourage a calf to start eating grain.
Behind every successful beef project is an effective feeding program. Therefore, it’s important to know the different types of feed and their purposes. There are three stages in feeding cattle: creep and transition, grower, and finisher. Using the proper feed for your animal is crucial to help your animal reach its prime.
It’s important to provide your cattle stress relief. Stress from handling aggravates cattle, which can result in a compromised immune system.
