Help Support CattleToday:



Have a question on shrinking a steer prior to weigh-in at the county fair.

He weighs about 1420 lbs and needs to be around 1270 lbs – 1290 lbs. He is on a holding ration right now and looks pretty good. I read that there are two types of shrink 1) temporary & 2) permanent.

Since I have never done this before what are the best options and how much weight can I expect loose? If someone could outline the steps on how to do this, I would be very appreciative.
