Thyme, oregano being used to battle feedlot odors. Oregano and thyme are part of the recipe Vince Varel, Elaine Berry and Jim Wells are using to try to defeat feedlots odors rank enough to wrinkle the stoutest of Nebraska noses. “These spices have been on kitchen cabinet shelves for ever and ever,” Varel said, “and they have been shown to be effective as anti-microbial chemicals.
