Well just an update. I've been feeding about a pound per day of 12% pellets with rumensin and my bull is looking much better. I doubt rumensin is necessary but I didn't want to stock 2 different feeds. He hasn't been getting that huge bulging hay gut anymore.

I think the bull looks alot better, and the rumensin may be helping his system process the hay better. We are having some issues and the vet has suggested that we might need the rumensin to help the gut tract work better, and utilize the hay better. we are going to try it after all we have had to deal with this fall with the excessive amounts of rain and "spring-like" pasture growth.
