A nice ol' guy at church gave our 16 yr. old a charolais to raise for the county fair. The guy comes out regularly along with another fella and they give tips and such on raising him as a market steer. They did the steroid-type implants, he's just at 1 year old. Our fair is the beginning of November. They have our daughter feeding a mix of cracked corn/calf manna and hay. I think we've put a mineral block in his lot, too. He's been wormed regularly and is alone in the lot. She exercises him everday and has begun to bathe him weekly. Does this sound like we are doing the right things and what are your opinions of charolais selling at this level? We'd appreciate your comments as this is our first time with the steer, we usually do market swine!
