There are all kinds of spring borns for sale right now (show calves) look at the classified add on Steerplanet.com or any of the sales going on right now look at Showsteers.com, directory, upcoming sales, I'm sure you could find something to replace him with.

I would hit him with 100 mg of melatonin (33 3mg tablets) from Wal-Mart for about a week and see if that does not take the edge off. If it does I would keep him on it all the way through and double it at the show, it is not a drug and is not tested for, it is what they use to promote hair growth. If it helps some but still a little on edge add 4 more pills, if he stands there half a sleep or to mellow drop 4 pills and see if that does not help. If that does not work I'd ship him, not worth it.

Going to be buying one from the Louisville, KY show (North American International Livestock Expo). Have a friend that just so happens is going to be there. We can't make it so he will be doing our picking for us. Will try and post up here a pic or 2. I cant get this dang picture thing to work. Last time someone gave me their number and I just texted pics to them and they loaded them lol.

These are a couple of the steer we have been dealing with. These pics are about month-month 1/2 old. Wish we could do something with him, think he would real good come May. Will post back some of the new one we will be getting. Would be nice to just post pics without using the url, guess I will figure it out one day. Thanks again for all of yall's time.

To post a picture using your link you'd use

I don't know what all they look for at shows, he looks OK, but doesn't make my mouth water.

Good luck finding a replacement for him, and at the shows :)
