The last few days I've been tweeting back and forth with a cattle rancher in my state of South Dakota. His family and a few others raise cattle in a grass fed environment and then finish them off at a separate facility with corn/grain fed measures. Michael Pollan even traded emails with this guy as I have learned since Pollan purchased a steer from the family and had it raised on this rancher's land.
I'm trading questions with him about why corn is used vs. grass, the use of hormones, how Monsanto preys on farmers, etc. I'm attempting to do so in a non-hostile way and he is answering back as I would expect. Here is his latest piece of documentation he has sent me about why hormones are safe for beef. Take a look for your own review. What are your thoughts or what would you say in defense of no hormones?
