Some (feed lot mostly) American cattle are fed a growth hormone, but , are
taken off of it 30 days before slaughter.

In talking with experts, they say this is long enough for the hormone to
pass from the animal.

If this is true or not I do not know.

Anyone else have any input on this?

<PDC> not an expert, just an observer.
