Dan Thomson on Fatigue Cattle Syndrome- A Cause of Mobility Issues Seen in Feedlot CattleFri, 21 Aug 2015 09:45:44 CDT
The director of the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University, Dr. Dan Thomson, reports on important new research which confirms a feedlot cattle condition dubbed "fatigue cattle syndrome". This study discovered the actual cause of highly-publicized cattle mobility issues at the packing plant which occurred a couple of years ago, and that the use of beta-agonist products in cattle finishing was not the root of the problem.
Zilmax was voluntarily withdrawn by Merck in August of 2013- they continue to maintain an up to date website- Zilmax.Com and the Company says they continue to work to get Zilmax back onto the market once field studies are complete.
