MY CALVE'S ARE LOOSING HAIR FROM THEIR HOOVES UP TO THEIR KNEES. I'VE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE AND I'M BELIEVING THAT IT COULD BE DO TO THE COLD. HAIR LOSS BEGINS AT ABOUT 2 TO 3 WEEKS OF AGE AND THE SKIN IS A NICE HEALTHY PINK COLOR. CALVES ARE OTHERWISE HEALTHY.

Are the calves itchy? Are they from the same bull? There is the potential of a familial alopecia which I've seen in Herefords...itchy could indicate parasites

Did they scour and get crap on their legs--that will scald and cause hair loss...

Just some ideas...

MY NAME IS EUGENE MC CULLAGH AND I AM ONLY 13 BUT I LIKE TO THINK I KNOW SOMETHING SO I WOULD SAY THAT THE OTHER CATLE AROUND IT ARE DOUNGING ON ITS LEGS AND THAT IT IS DRYING UP AND PEELING OFF OR AS YOU SAY IT MIGHT BE THE COLD. WHERE ARE YOU KEEPING THEM AT ?
