Cattle Care and Feeding

Care and Time

Feeding and watering every morning and night

Working with calf every day or every other day will help with calf attitude and work ethic

Showmanship practice will be weekly with Mr. Shannon on days discussed that fit the group. 

Washing and drying 2 to 3 days a week will help stimulate the hair growth and keep the calf looking fresh and show ready. 

Hoof trimming should occur every 6 to 8 weeks and medication should only be administered by the Vet Dr. Williams at Bridgeport Animal Hospital or Mr. Shannon if approved by Dr. Williams. You are more than welcome to find another vet that best fit you and your calves needs but we have a good working relationship with Dr. Williams. 

Cleaning pens Daily! This will help keep your animal show ready as well. A dirty pen causes disease and parasites, as well as a bad looking animal. 

Worming should be done every 28 days. Ask Mr. Shannon what to use.
