DENVER — As stated in a press release issued on Friday, Aug. 9, “Cattlemen and women believe in the right of farmers and ranchers to responsibly use FDA-approved technologies. We also believe in Tyson’s right to make individual company decisions that they feel are in the best interest of their business.”

To clarify, NCBA supports Tyson’s right to make their decision to stop accepting cattle fed Zilmax, in order to ensure animal health and well-being. We also support Merck Animal Health’s five-step plan and their efforts to  address questions related to the use of Zilmax and animal welfare.
