Is lump jaw likely to affect any age of animal?

K.C. Fox says 2015-12-03 12:41:32 (CST)

yes the older the animal the more chances ti have happen. I remember cutting lump,s because of cactus spines being embedded in the mouth. those first calf heifers came from NM in the 50's they had been eating cactus for 3 years. roped most of them, calved them out 2 times and then they had grass to feed them. I think we had 250 of them. the owner said that they burned the points off with a propane torch and the cattle just stood there and waited for them to finish so they could eat.
