Title: Pumping heifers with water/fluids
Post by: psmith on August 08, 2017, 12:25:26 PM
Hi,

New to the game and I've been hearing a lot about "pumping fluids" to animals to achieve a more desired look. Before I look into the rules - what are the risks of doing this (both short and long term)? Seems somewhat unethical, but what do I know? I just want to make sure I'm not risking the health of an animal for personal satisfaction before I do it.    :)

Thanks!

It's safer than using a drench gun

If it's against the rules lay off it

It's not detrimental to their health as long as it's done correctly
