I'm from west Texas and i have a shorthorn heifer and i used to have a shorthorn steer, both of them started to lose hair around their eyes and then it moved to their head, but none of them had a circle before this started occuring, so i don't think it's ringworm. Right now we're treating it with some medicine. But i have noticed when i went to a stock show at san angelo, i went to look at buying another steer, and every shorthorn on this ranch had their WHOLE face bald with this disease. Any comments would be greatly appreciated it. Thanks
