On many ranches, weaned calves go directly from the pasture to the sale barn, where they’re sold at auction, by the pound, to feedlots. The Blairs prefer to own their steers straight through to slaughter and to keep them on the ranch for a couple of months of “backgrounding” before sending them on the 500-mile trip to Poky Feeders. Think of backgrounding as prep school for feedlot life: the animals are confined in a pen, “bunk broken”—taught to eat from a trough—and gradually accustomed to eating a new, unnatural diet of grain. (Grazing cows encounter only tiny amounts of grain, in the form of grass seeds.)
The Canadian Animal Health Institute reports that steroid hormones have a long safety record without incident for cattle and consumers dating back to their introduction in Canada in the 1960s and 1950s in the . They are also approved for use in Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, Chile and another 24 countries. The World Health Organization, United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the European Community Scientific Committee and the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives agree that hormones used in beef cattle production don’t pose a health risk to humans.
Finally, the sole veterinary Trenbolone product worth mentioning is known as Trenol 50, manufactured by WDV Pharmaceuticals in various Asian countries. Trenbolone is dosed at 50mg/ml in 6ml multi-dose vials. Unfortunately, individuals looking to buy Trenbolone in this form will be hard pressed to locate it in North America. This makes Trenol 50 very rare in the North American region, and is not well known. Unfortunately, very few anabolic steroid retailers and sources find that it is either impossible to stock this product, or that it is not even worth the time or effort to do so.
