There may be other packers taking the cattle but it would sure be a scramble to find them at this point in the game.  It may be that Tyson owns all the smaller plants where the county fair steers go for the carcass contests.  I do not know the answer to that.

It's not hard to follow the rules in my mind. I know when we did steers we had to sign off on papers saying we did everything ethical during our project.

The problem is that the rules were changed at the end of the game.  If someone is/was feeding Zilmax, they are/were not doing anything wrong.  They can still show legally and if they win, fine.  The problem will be when they try to sell the steer because the packers are not wanting those steers.   Its more than likely a PR move more than anything on the packer's part.

In our county, the cattle are sold for a set market price .. plus whatever premium they bring through the sale.  So basically if the packer will not take the steer, all the kid gets is the premium.  They then have to find another place to market the live animal.   

My problem with the announcement is that #1.  Zilmax is not illegal, but a packer is choosing not to accept any cattle that have been fed it.  and #2..  this is really late in the feeding cycle/show season to come out with an announcement like this.  Someone who is feeding this and doing it right could stand to loose and there isn't a thing they can do about it.   On that note, I've seen several new craigslist ads just the last day or so trying to sell market steers after a given fair date. 

I wonder if there is anything that can be done?   ie contacting Tyson? writing letters to whoever might be in a position to change the decision?

I thought Gran 4 Tfyer had a ration scenario that was around 13% protein and 3% fat.   We fed this product for awhile but seems expensive way to buy a bunch  of cottonseed hulls I wouldn't normally feed.

He would work but wouldn't be my first choice for a couple reasons.   I think semen can be pricey.   There are other good calving ease Dream On sons to use.. In Dew Time to name one.

The Doc Epd bothers me a little in that it is subjective.  I do think it is important but also think there are so many other factors... recip, natural dam, how the calf is handled, etc.    Firesweep.. your calves are pretty much handled daily from birth?   I would  think that even a 'bad' one would be more inclined to be tame than if they were turned out in a large pasture and only see humans from a distance once a week or so.

How long has that EPD even been tracked?
  Good call Frostie!  IMO, not long enough for it to be a big factor. No doubt it will get there.  Even if it were,he is only.54 ACC on that EPD which is not high enough to call it accurate.
