Crooked Gap Farm
Hello, we just picked up our first Dexters yesterday. A bred heifer and a 8 month old steer. The steer has "hay belly"? We were told because he is only fed hay. I have heard of "hay belly" in horses, but never in association with cattle. How do you deal with this (he has a big belly)? Is it just a nutrition thin and now that we will be working him onto pasture slowy (because he has never had anything but hay) it will pass, or is it a sign of something else. Any thoughts would be great.
