Perception is not reality – Tim Eagan

In one week of working with Dr. Wade Taylor of Production Animal Consultation I’ve seen over 200,000 head of cattle, and learned a tremendous amount about the veterinarian’s role in the beef industry.  One of the most interesting revelations has been finding out just how wrong many conceptions of a large beef feedlot are.  I was surprised to see the quality and intensity of care the cattle are given.  Each pen is checked daily and sick or injured cattle are immediately moved  to hospital pens.  I would encourage anyone who gets the chance to visit a large feedlot and check it our for themselves.
