    Hey that's an idea, maybe I can open a drive thru for Jains? Uh, that might not be a real winner here in B-Town.

    Hormones are injected, not added to feed. BSE (aka mad cow) is a prion, a misfolded protein, not bacterial. It found it's way into cattle feed through meat and bone meal, which was banned in ruminant feed in 1997.

    Yup. Gave up cow juice when I found out I'm suffering intolerant.

    Well Suzy, it's been great, but tomorrow you embark on a road that you'll have to travel alone. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

    It's not that surprising that veggies sometimes have e coli. Wild animals have to poop somewhere

    I agree about the respect for the animals, and as you say, there's not a line that 300 cows are dragged down and contaminated. It's one or a couple. I would assume that overall, though, the percentages may be similar (in contamination).

    The other thing is if there is salmonella in beef, but not at a high level, we may (and probably do) eat meat with low levels of contamination fairly often. I read an article about a decade ago that said "the 24 hour flu" that most people talk about is often (almost always?) mild food poisoning.

    From an ethical standpoint, I'd much rather buy pastured and grain finished beef than beef from confined cows fed a mix ration that's only designed to make them gain as fast as possible.

    It's how we did it, but there were definitely unscrupulous operators around us who were handy with a hose at the very least.

    Beef doesn't come from cows. It is cows.

    That's a respectful/respectable way for a milk cow to end her life.
    I feel the same way about horses, but it's not a popular sentiment! :D

    I studied anthropology and not animal husbandry , I was aware of the effected population in New Guinea and the paralells to the mad cow and you are right is is a protien , but if the banned meal from 1997 should have halted any further out breaks , and yet we still have it , so it looks like some one is coloring out side the lines in the coloring book, and not following the rules. appearently!

    the issue with a Jain drive thru would be that if they were good Jain's they'd show up less and less...

    Animal by- products are cheap and plentiful. It seems to me that there are still people who haven't figured out that there is no safe way to feed animal parts to herbivores.

    If cows were faster and had sharper teeth, they'd eat meat just like the rest of us! ;) :D :p

    I've been to places where the cows graze on the lower slopes of the nearby mountains where the rattlesnakes abound, they graze right where the snakes make their home. Sometimes they get too close to the snake, they get bit, and their jaw swells horribly, or an ankle, or whatever the cow happens to get too close to the snake. Eventually, the cow gets over it, but they look really bad when the bag of puss forms. Just capture that image, and put it right in there with your next scrumptious hamburger.
