Our steer is penned and is going to the butcher in another month. I've been feeding him sweet feed and corn, but for the last few days he doesn't seem to be too interested in his food. There are a lot of flies in and around his dish, so I've tried giving him smaller amounts in his food dish so that food doesn't sit too long, and he does seem to be eating more. Also, can I give him a little hay once a day? A friend said it's not a good idea. Help! We're new at this and need all the advice we can get.
