So does cutting off hooves, tail, head and hide. How much feed byproduct is in there? Anybody can about claim anything, you just have to prove that it doesn't and even if you could, other "natural events" will skew your or their results. Marketing-marketing-marketing. *disclaimer---we don't/never used the product so take my words with a grain of salt...err mineral. lol

They have been promoting this the past couple years. It is supposed to help to keep intake up during heat events. You’re supposed to feed it a day or two in advance to a heat event. It costs 25 cents/hd/day. Does anybody have experience with this product and was it worth the 25 cents? TIA.
I was also told that it can increase the dressing percentage come time for slaughter. I can’t remember the supposed rhyme or reason but I am rather skeptical of that claim.
