I bought a couple of young bulls 2 weeks ago at a very good price. The younger one is 8 months and pot bellied. I’m told he had been weaned for 30 days and he didn’t bellow and carry on when he got here so i know he isn’t straight off of his mother. He seems a little small for his age and is pot bellied with the right side hanging lower. I wormed them with cydectin and moved them on to 15 percent feed, hay and they have oats and rye to graze.
The guy was feeding mostly corn with a little 13 percent mixed in. I’m thinking worms and lack of protein got him here.
My question is is he too far along to really fix?

No, he eats, drinks and acts fine. My vet for my dogs also runs cows and said to worm him which i already had. He’s a registered beefmaster i’m going go give him a few months and see. I didn’t pay much for him. Worst case i’ll put him in the freezer.
