seems like the meatpacker is about as good as Cambells soup about just running the chicken thro the broth. How can you take one critter and infect 8 states and 1 province with just parts of critter. news media ha. They really must be greedy to take a suspucious cow and process it that fast where are the inspectors oh yes they didn,t need them. Lets get back to basic and forget about profits and be satisfied with a good life . Sorry to rant so long but must get relief bob

Soylent Green of beasty type.

That's cuz they're feeding cow back to cow, chickens back to chickens, and hogs back to hogs. Yup you heard right, no dignity for God's animals.
So he's getting even, he's spreading the diseases
around to send a message.


~Lenore... my take    Posted 12-29-2003 at 07:47:10       [Reply]  [No Email]

As a Christian, my solution is to give thanks and ask God to bless my food.
My God is bigger than 'mad cow' disease.
I will continue to eat and not worry after praying over my food.
It's things like this that makes having faith a very comforting thing.
:-)

Lenore, Thanks for the reminder. Sometimes we forget how well the Lord looks out for us.

Our meat processing & distribution industry is more based upon good faith than controls like in other countries.

I do not know one farmer that will eat a sick animal. Best to do what a lot of us are doing on this site- raise the animals for meat yourself.

I'm with sgg. It seems that most of this is restricted to milk cows. However the good news is that it looks like I may now be able to eat prime cuts of beef on an unemployment check.

I haven't checked out meat prices lately, my dad in Az said prices were a little lower, Seems to me you can't go thru life afraid of living. Also another thought, shouldn't there be a little better way of actually tracking and keeping track of where things are sent.. Instead of waiting 6 days to be able to inform people where the meat could have went?

Here's my thought....I thought they said the cow was a Holistin? Never raised cows before, but I thought those were milk cows? Am I way off?

Yes Holsteins are milk cows. Spent milk cows are sent
to slaughter and usually end up at mac donalds and in
cans of soup and such - the meat is not very attractive
for cuts. The same thing with spent hens - lotta pot pies
and mc nuggets.

Absolutely. Factory farming is fraught with these
problems. The reason theres BSE and Scrapie (sheep)
is that you can't feed cow cow, and you can't feed
sheep sheep. But animal feed has been the dumping
ground for alot of waste for a very long time. Karma' s a
b&$ch!

Also with factory farming there's the problem of
polution. Waterways are poisoned by the extreme
amounts of waste produced, the air is foul.

Forget about all the ethical problems with the system, it
doesn't pay off at all except at the grocery store.
