4h steer

Postby hillsdown » Sat Jan 24, 2015 10:17 pm

We worked with Bodacious today so I thought I would take a few pics. 4 months until show and he is eating 32lbs of 4H ration a day. I am hoping he will bump up to at least 40lbs by mid Feb as that is where Ace was last year at that time and Bodacious was started a month earlier on feed.

They are such a lively group :roll: :lol:
472 was my nieces steer until she baled on all of us last month, where is the loser smilie :cowboy:
This was 473 in Oct.

I could cut a steak out of them right now :>

They look really nice.. I don't know what makes a show steer, but that doesn't matter to me.

Thanks Nesi!!! :tiphat:
He won't be a year old until the end of March so he has a way to go to being finished yet ;-)

Mr Bo Jangles still needs to catch up a bit because he I managed to grab him from his mom the day before weigh in Nov 2nd. His dam kept taking off with him before that every time I tried to bring them all in form pasture and wean them. :dunce: I am sure come the end of May he will be more than fat fat fat.

I agree with Brangus cowgirl, take it easy! You have been in our prayers.

The steers look good. Any idea on your weights? You are one month ahead of us; our sterry is an April, our fair is June, and he weighed 889 yesterday. Our first weigh in is in feb, he will come in heavy compared to the rest.
Keep us posted on the progress. :clap:

Brangus that is Matthew in the pics. Thank you for thinking I look like a 12 year old boy!!! I had surgery but not THAT much surgery :lol: :roll: :lol2: :P

We are weighing them all this afternoon, will let you know the weights. Nov 2nd 473's weigh in weight was 815 ,his DOB is March 8 2014. I am guess he will be around the 1150 mark right now. I really want to get him to around 1500 lbs by show weekend.

Nesi, I need to switch breeds, mine are far too laid back. A little excitement once and a while would be nice.. :banana:
