Maybe it's like when we gave a friend an air up girlfriend at his bachelor party. :o

Did I just say that?!

It's done to make the cattle look more full, either in their hind end, or the top of their rib, or their flank. It's usually a practice that is VERY much against the rules and I sure wouldn't suggest doing it.  Pumping is one thing, airing is a whole other ball game.

If it's the type of airing I'm thinking your talking about you can go to jail for it. Cruelty to animals

I'm sure that many on here know alot more about than they are saying. Having been on the show road for over 30 years I have seen it all. Airing is illegal. Simply put they shoot air under the hide to fill holes that are naturally occurring in cattle in an attempt to make them better. RW

It is cruel and unusual. THis is second hand as we would NEVER do anything like this.

They make slits in the skin along the rear quarter. They blow air underneath the skin. The skin is pulled away from the tissue underneat. As the tissue scars it builds up under the skin and enhances the shape.

I am not sure why anyone would find this humane in any sense.

Could a guy air up a potload of feeder calves and run them through an auction. Would they weigh more? What does air weigh? ;D

It does tear the skin away from the tissue that binds it to the muscle which I'm sure is quite painful. RW

Im not sayin your wrong but cruelty to animals dont you have to hurt or harm the animals. What does it do to the meat?


Wait do I need to repeat what I just said. How is what I said not cruel. making slits in the skin and blowing air under it. How do you think that would feel? They don't give a general anesthetic.

From what I have seen in the past they use a needle to inject the air under the hide. Several years ago I new a steer jock that would air his every 4 weeks. Oh and by the way - he is no longer in business. RW

I dont know I heard that they use needles i have never heard of someone slitting the hide

It can be done with needles. EITHER WAY IT IS WRONG AND ILLEGAL!

Either way, would you like me to peel your skin away from the muscle while you are awake and restrained? With needles or slits in the skin?  Yes they can use a basketball pump too.. anything else you know you would like to share.

Sorry for knowing something I am kinda new to this whole cattle thing now reason for you to be a jerk about it

It's not what you know, it's the fact that it is illegal and it sounded like you wanted to find a good way to do it. OH Breeder is very knowledgeable and I would respect his position on this issue, especially since it's illegal.

not being a jerk, but when someone offers a advice and you ask a question about something you "didn't know about"yet then contradict the advice- it comes off kind of strange. Re-read what you posted and you will see my point.

There are alot of practices that are done. Just because they are done does make them okay or legal. I have heard of people putting fish hooks in calves teeth at NAILE to keep them from falling out. Using 2 x 4's to knock teeth back in. How comfortable do you think any of this would be? Is the animal injured? No but it is cruel and inhumane.
I personally have had enough surgery for most people in a life time. Any procedure without sedation can be extremely painful like pulling chest tubes out of your chest with no sedation or pain meds. I would not think of inflicting pain on an animal. You can tell a human hey this is going to hurt but an animal doesn't understand and it is wrong.

I assume you are young and a shower. No need to think any of these practices are acceptable. If you want to shorten your career then do not go down those pathways.

If I ever catch somebody airing one of my steers that I raised and sold, they had better be a damn fast runner -- and I Mean FAST.

If there are any one out there that thinks this is not cruelty -- I will demonstrate on that person what it feels like tohave your hide peeled off alive. There are alot of people (?? used in context) doing this  -- I hope they can sleep well at night, most likely doesn't bother them one darn bit. It's all about the money -- how stupid -- there you have it.

You young folks on here had better do more home work than you get from behind the barns -- it just is not right - that's all there is to it!

It is not illegal to be ignorant of procedural ethics -- HOWEVER -- it IS illegal AND imoral to do this once you know the least little bit about cattle. Now that you know, this subject aught to squeezed out of your brain cells and left at that. FFAshower - this is the bottom line, now you know, I hope you will use the info to do what is right and not go down this path!
