skin condition

Help Support CattleToday:



I have a 1 1/2 year old Angus steer who has recently developed a patch of skin on his neck that is thick and kind of scaley, crusty like. It is about the size of my hand. He is with 2 other cows who are fine. The hair looks fine there, but you can feel the crusty stuff when you pet him. What is it, and what can I do to rid him of this problem? Thanks!!!
Thanks "show mom", but he's not show quality. He is just a pet, who has never had a bath, he gets petted alot and that's about it. He is on a good mineral program also, if that matters
Guest, check this link out and navigate your way through it until you find something of interest. Not much help, I know, but best I can do at this time. This is just the general introduction on skin problems, so there's a lot of info to sift through and its not all bovine. Good luck in finding what you need! Sorry we haven't been more help to you......
