There is a "rumor" that JBS is not going to accept any cattle that has been fed Zilmax - so why would they do this if the product is such a benefit?

All beef should be Grass Fed not Steroids

This is the exact type of person the world does not need. Money comes before everything else.

All the 'supplements' given to animals destined for human consumption, end up inside us. No wonder there is a rise in obesity.

Mitch is looking a little like Pinocchio... I'm thinking I can decide whether this is a good product or not just by watching future vids with Mitch talking about all the benefits of zilmax and seeing whether his nose grows. Shame on you selling your soul. I'm not eating beef anymore if this is the kind of stuff they are being fed.

Yes, and what is the effect of Zilmax on the consumer after the beef is eaten or are beef-eaters going to play the part of lab rat again to find out sometime in the future that Zilmax causes cancer and birth defects???? It's all about profit for the beef producers. What about the effects on people??? I am glad I am vegan. I will not be a guinea pig,

Your company has been added to my boycott list, and I encourage others to do the same. (Tyson was already on it and shall remain) You have no conscience, and have more money than sense, so you certainly do not deserve nor will you receive any of my hard-earned dollars. You do not take into consideration the long-term effects of your cruelty, or the fact that your actions could even have a negative effect on your own families, not just strangers about whom you obviously do not care. It's all about the almighty dollar. You disgust me!!!
