What are yall's thoughts on Sullivan's Cattle Calm? And do you know if it can be used on bred heifers?

My opinion is it's a colossal waste of money!

I agree.   

However, we have a full tube and and empty tube in the show box.   My daughter thinks it works so we pretend we gave the heifer some and all is well.

Waste of money, if it has an effect it's very minor.

I used it on a couple of our heifers a few weeks ago..it worked on 1 but not so much on the other.  My previous experience was waste of money, now I think I'll try it again...

Is that for me or the calf?

We give 40-50 3mg of Melatonin 7 days before we show and OH BOY does it work.

We do not give ace.  We did try ace 3 cc in mouth and my daughter told me she can really tell that he is druged up, I ask her why. She said he wobbles when he walks hehe

So we stick to the Melatonin.

Costco has it cheap 300 pills for 5.89

Do you give the melatonin for 7 days straight or just on day 7  before the show?

Stierwalt feeds the melatonin also and I think he said he starts 30 days out, I'll have to go back and check that.
