How soon is the fair? More muscle means more weight which means more feed. A local man whos kids had many Grand Champion Beef steers over the years kept them tied around the clock, then had the kids lead them around the farm for at least an hour each day. If nothing else it trained them to lead well.
my fair is in like 3 weeks and i have looked at other calves and they look nothing like mine, I feed him a 5 gallon bucket of feed every day and i lead, bathe, and blow um dry, he looked like a really nice calf about a month ago and he has went downhill. any advise will be apreciated
Assuming this is a serious post, there is very little you can do to physically change (bulk up) a calf in three weeks. What may have happened is the calf entered the rangy growth stage where he is starting to elongate and lose his baby (milk) fat.
