  •  meanwhile, until we TEST. EVERY. COW. (9+ / 0-)

    for BSE prior to slaughter, there's no reason to assume any cow is free of BSE.

    This would also make up for the shoddy slaughterhouse practices here.  Stick a knife in the spinal cord of an infected cow, and that knife can transfer BSE to the next several cows being slaughtered.  Bon appetit!

    Testing every cow is standard practice throughout Europe and even in several developing countries.  There's no excuse for not doing so here -- except that those producers who actually want all their cattle tested are actually forbidden from doing so!

    •  We buy beef locally (1+ / 0-)

      from a closed, grass fed herd...in chunks which we grind ourselves.

      It is more expensive, but we should not eat that much beef anyway.
