Your steer may just be shedding out hair when you brush him. Is it unusual for you to loose hair when you put a comb through your hair? I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it is only shedding out in clumps in only a few spots and you see bites or bugs in those spots. Then it could be either lice or mange, and you'd want to treat it.

If it's something that needs treated, you had better do it asap, if you are selling the steer for slaughter. You don't want to be pegged with a bill for residues in the meat. ~Kacey
