“Buddy 3” looks allot cleaner with the clipping job, he looks quite a bit more balanced. I would get him on some barley, corn or barleycorn and try to get some more fat on him. Based off of your post you have 3 weeks left you can get a little more finish on him in that time. The last week try some beet pulp to give him that full look also.

Looks good and good luck.

Thanks for all the comments!!

VCC,
He is getting about 20 lbs of barley a day. I expect he should put on another 60-80 lbs, he will be close to finished, but maybe not quite there. The coooold winter we had sure slowed the gaining down, more than we had realized. Oh, well, he is what he is and not much more we can do for him. I'd use the beet pulp, but really don't know where we would find it in this area.

I have never shown that I didn't feel another two or three weeks could have done the world of wonders for my animals.

Don't underestimate what can be done in 3 weeks, though.

Thanks everyone for the comments. We had our 4H achievement day on Monday, and the kids did quite well.

Jordan placed first in cloverbud grooming, and 3rd in Showmanship and Project animal (there are only 3 cloverbuds and they all got a first ;-) )

Matthew placed 4th in the light weight class, the steer weighed 1140 at the show and was the heaviest in his class. And he placed 3rd in Junior showmanship. We were happy with how he did, and I think he was too. His steer behaved for him very nicely, so he had fun too.
