NCBA Issues Statement On Feed Additive Decision By Tyson

NCBA Issues Statement On Feed Additive Decision By Tyson

Last week, Tyson decided not to process beef that had been given the feed additive Zilmax. Following that decision the market jumped up. NCBA President Scott George released a statement outlining his group’s position on the issue. He says Cattlemen and women believe in the right of producers to responsibly use FDA approved technologies as well as Tyson’s being able to exercise their rights.

George says his group not only back producers who want to use the product but believes they are safe if managed in the right way.

When asked if he’s concerned about other processors banning Zilmax, George said he would not speculate but stood on NCBA’s statement.
