Having a conversation about cottonseed at the moment. Any of you know/hear anything about cottonseed consumption causing lowered testosterone in bucks? Or even, worst case, making them sterile?

Google WCS and Gossypol. WCS has been known to cause sterility in bulls when fed it large amounts. Lots of people have fed WCS for a long time and still have fawn crops. Vast majority of them do not feed it year round also. There was some research done at Overton feeding it to exotics.

Bill Maltsberger stopped feeding cottonseed at the end of August and restarted in late January. His track record for big deer is well established. He also adds a custom blended mineral to it that he developed for his cattle.
