Idaho Cattle Companies will Stop Drugging Cows

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two Idaho cattle operations have agreed to stop drugging cows at high enough levels that the medications could pass to humans after a federal lawsuit. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sued T & T Cattle and T & T Cattle Pearl in Parma, along with owner Gregory Troost and manager Mark Mourton, earlier this month

. In the complaint, the federal government contended animals at the farms were given medications in such high doses that once they were sold, their meat contained illegally high drug residue levels. The federal government said those residues could hurt people with allergies.

Under an agreement filed Wednesday, the farm operators said they would improve record-keeping, abide by animal medication rules and refrain from selling animals with excessive drug residue for human consumption.
