Subject: Feeding plastic to cattle * Ruff-Tabs

Southeast Wyoming

The discussion below about removing netwrap from feed processors made me think of the Ruff-Tabs that Farmland Industries introduced years ago, thinking it would revolutionize cattle feeding - another idea that got Farmland Industires where it is today.   lol

Do any of you have any experience with using Ruff-Tabs?  I believe I saw some at one time but never knew anyone who used them.  As I recall, they were a hard plastic just a little smaller than, but similar to packing peanuts.  I never understood why they would not pass through and out of the cattle's system.

I'd be concerned with feeding ground up netwrap "strings" to livestock but I guess it is done all of the time; which does not necessarily mean it is good for the livestock, but time is money.

I did a google search and didn't come up with much except this link:,1462863

And on a side note, if find that link very interesting because it appears to be a scan of a newspaper and you can pan around and see the news of that day, January 29, 1971.  I'm surprized it shows up on a google search.
