    Steer Moving Slow

    He's been on both grain and pasture. We just moved him and the others from one pasture to another across the creek. He seems to be doing much better now, other than being the last guy to come in! He is eating grain with everyone and also noticed he has been hitting the minerals a bit more often...

    Steer Moving Slow

    Nothing new or different with the grain... The only thing new to him was the pasture. He is now eating with everyone again, but still lags behind a bit and stays a distance from the others when out grazing as well. As soon as I go in there with them, he will follow me to the feed and he's fine...

    Steer Moving Slow

    No temp - but something just doesn't seem right. Allergies perhaps? We'll call the vet out if he doesn't improve soon. Just seems odd. He's eating grass and hay fine, but is keeping a little more away from the herd. The grain it seems like he just all of a sudden doesn't want it, although once...

    Steer Moving Slow

    We've got a steer who recently started moving around quite a bit slower than than the rest of the herd. There were a couple days he wouldn't eat grain with them. He'd make it over and just stand there while the others ate. He seems to be eating with everyone now, but is still slow and hanging...

    Heifer in with steers?

    Was private party - and they're little ones. Just weaned. So The price was right for them all together. Not a huge deal. The guy was good about it - We'll more than likely be buying from him again. He offered to refund some $$, but told him we can just work it out the next time around. It was a...

    Heifer in with steers?

    Just picked up what should have been 4 young steers, but I messed the #'s up and they loaded a heifer and 3 steers. Oops! My question is - will she be ok being mixed in with all steers? If this is a dumb question, I do apologize in advance 🙄 Thank you!!

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    It was said that she was bred to a Heresford as well... We shall see what comes of it :) Vet will be out next week still to check her.

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    We ended up going to pick up a dose of Draxxin for her. She seemed to already be clearing up after moving her to the working area pen. Still gave her the shot to be safe. We left her in the pen over night, just to keep her out of the barn for a bit, and she seems to have done well. Definitely...

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    Just got off the phone with our vet. He said to come on down and he'll get us something as a precautionary. Want to nip it before it turns into something more. Said we could give her noromyin 300, but he'd feel better with something stronger to be safe. Didn't say what, but I will check when I...

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    That was my thought. I'm thinking if she gets worse or starts showing other signs if something, I'll get the vet out sooner. But she seems ok otherwise. Just makes us nervous with the slow down in eating and little bit of snot...

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    She was said to have been vaccinated with triangle 10... We were thinking of maybe fencing a smaller area temporarily to let her on the grass just to give her more area. Would keep her by herself for a while to be safe. She's very gentle and easy to move around, so I don't think it'll be an...

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    She's only been in the pen in the barn (with open sides) since we got her. Just to get her used to her feed area, etc... Nothing from her eyes. Probably about a 20 x 18 area she's in. That's why we were getting ready to let her out to pasture. You think it may help her?

    Slight Runny Nose - When to Be Concerned?

    We picked up a bred heifer this past weekend. She seems to be healthy and such. We haven't let her out to pasture just yet. Planning on letting her out this afternoon. We noticed she hasn't been eating as much hay as when we first got her last Sunday and now she seems to have one nostril running...
