That picture is from last week and he's definitely putting on the weight since then I'll have to get a new picture for you all.
I've been adding calf manna pellets to his bucket of milk (only way I can get him to eat them) and he sucks up the milk and then eats the soupy pellets. He finally ate dry calf manna pellets yesterday for the first time
I banded him yesterday...hope that doesn't set him back though he only seemed upset about it for a little bit and then went about happily munching grass.
I have a good probios powder and a bovine probios paste...I think I'll give him some powder in the milk and a click of the gel too.
Yep, he's got a great hide. He's freezer bound...even though I'm in love with him I spend a lot of time with him...being one of my first calves and having brought him back from death's door. He loves cheek scratches. I keep telling him he's a cute piece of beef and DH thinks I'm crazy. I'll probably cry over my steaks when the time comes.
