A model would help but if it is a ZT200 series you should be able to use one of the following:

15W40
20W50
15W50 synthetic

Synthetic is not required because the Bobcats have a large resovoir and a cooler unlike some others like Exmark that use a small resovoir and no cooler.

Again this is for the ZT200 series. If you have something else it may be different.

I would call a Bobcat dealer and see what they recommend. If nothing else they should have the correct oil.
