Most cattle eat grass on the range, then grain on the feedlot before they
are slaughtered. A lot if vegetables are fed cow, chicken, and/or people
manure.
Gimme a nice rare steak!

There is nothing new in this story. Been going on for eons.

This is how, they believe, "mad cow disease" spreads. By the way,
they also are fed carcasses of other animals, including other cattle.

Now where do _you_ suppose that 25 Million lbs of bad HB will end up?

In addition, for many years, feedlot operators have been recycling cow poop to
harvest the undigested grain from it and feed it back to the cattle.

Fed on the range? Not most by a long shot. The feed is not all grain
either. It may include grandpa cow ground up into the feed.

I think you have been listening to many commercials from the beef
industry.

Our Congressional representatives can probably provide the answer
to this question.

Incidentally, I understand that many European nations have banned
"cannibal cows." The U.S., however, has not yet passed a law against
this practice.

Yuck.

There are a lot of Muslims here who slaughter animals according to
Islamic practice, call it Islamic kosher.

Do you know anything about this kind of raising and slaughtering as
practiced in Texas? We know some Pakistanis and have wondered about
joining them in meat purchases.

Anyhow, that was truly "yuck".

Right. And just remember, Jim, next time you pop a large, ripe, succulent
stawberry into your mouth and savour the taste ... that manure is what
every farmer uses also to make strawberries large, ripe and succulent.

Reminds me of the old, old, old joke about one farmer chatting up with his
neighbour farmer on the road one day. "What are you going to do with that
load of manure, Joe?" sez farmer #1.

"I'm going to put it on my strawberries," sez farmer #2.

"That's strange," sez farmer #1. "We always put cream on ours."

I don't know if it's any worse than all the bull the politicians
have been feeding us for years. That's truly yuck. (g)
have a good day.

Didn't say I didn't believe it... It was a joke... Poop... BS... Get
it... ??

Many animals eat feces... Don't sound to appetizing to you and me
maybe, but maybe... unlike animals, that's cause we've never tried
it... <g>

No, just getting back on track after a wonderful summer.
How you doing Doris.

Just heard that Mother Theresa passed away, apparently it was on the CBC
news.

more than grandpa cow. it also included chicken, pig, sheep, and any
other commercial meat animals' unsaleable other parts.

look for range fed meat. it is available, more expensive, safer.
also less fatty.

we get such here in colorado. free range chickens, too. ours comes
from coleman meats (commercial - oops!) but there is already a second
supplier of such in the local markets. we get ours from the natural
foods store here - no, those places are not for vegetarians alone. ours
also has the only fish which doesn't stink this far from the sea.

Then you are dead wrong! Believe it or not out here in the wild west
folks are smashing the 10% shit out of cow pies and feeding the other 90%
back to the cows. They mix it with fresh feed and cows aren't picky
eaters.
