TFA:  "There was a video. Let us describe it to you. Because it's better to read our description of a video than to actually watch it."

The making of the video is a crime.

I have a way to fix this issue with the cows, it involves more pills and shots, trust me nothing could possibly go wrong here.

β-agonists don't cause paralysis. They just make your heart beat faster and make you jittery.

I would suspect this article is full of cattle manure. I live in the middle of cattle country here in central Florida, and the vast, vast majority of beef cattle here are all grass fed. Also, to give a drug to cattle to gain a mere 30 pounds would not really be cost effective unless the drug cost a dollar or two.

Cattlemen do not just give cattle drugs willy nilly. There has to be a problem, or something going around in the herd. They are just too expensive and labor intensive to just give, "off the cuff".

ramblemn; are you interested in purchasing live cattle or freezer beef? If freezer beef, google Nettles Beef Processing. They should be able to hook you up.

rBST is bad for cows.

Where do they even sell milk that contains rBST treated cow's milk?  I haven't seen it in ages.

Oh, now that I RTFA, it's about a different growth drug.

So, they are feeding cows asthma medicine now?

Most cattle are grass fed at the start. It's only once they're sold to beef companies that put them on feedlots that cattle get fattened up by corn, drugs, etc. The "fatten 'em up" stage only lasts for a few months (if that much) before they're sent to the slaughter house.

Part of the "problem" is that, while grass-fed beef is leaner and healthier, it's also tougher and chewier. Americans tend to prefer tender beef with lots of fatty marbling.

From what I understand some meat producers are starting to discontinue the use of these kinds of drugs because in a lot of the rest of the world they're starting to enact prohibitions against selling meat from animals bulked up with drugs. So anyone who doesn't stop using them is locking themselves out of many overseas markets.
