Haha...maybe the U.S. was premature in calling Reagan the "Teflon President." Blame Canada!

Regardless, I still think that diseased animals should not be allowed to be entered into the food supply. Even if the risk is supposedly low for that cow to cause mad cow disease in humans, would we like to take chances for the sake of $$? If diseased animals are fine, then I'd like to see our President and our fine, gluttonous Congressmen and women have a feast of diseased animals during one of their next celebrations.

This does have positive consequences for the American beef industry, however, because now that it can be traced to Canadian cattle, America is likely not going to be labelled a "mad cow" country, if I read correctly somewhere.

yep you're right on that one melon... the cow came from canada, so america's off the hook as far as "mad cow country" labeling goes. america's still at fault, and needs to up their testing considerably to make sure this doesn't happen again, but it does appear now that the main problem is still in alberta, canada.

That hasn't been totally determined yet. The Canadian records matching the cow from the tag (supposed to be hers) say she would be 6 years old. But the cow in question was much younger. If we had a identifying system like our friends to the north, we would know exactly.

the cow in question was thought to be 4 according to records... the canadians list the same cow as 6 1/2 years old... i don't think there's any doubt as to where the cow came from. the fact that i'm debating the age and place of birth of a cow disturbs me just a bit

But jusst because this cow is from Canada doesnt make it any less likely to havve contracted the disease in the US, or Canada. And the age of the cow is very important, Canadian officals want DNA testing of the cow to determine if it is from Canada.

All I know is....start looking into companies that are creating tracking devices, and software applications for this type of thing. It may very well be a good investment. Many of the stocks have had a bit of a jump today, and some are quite affordable if you have some change.

When you're a candidate that doesn't have a solid platform, you have to spend most of your energy degrading your opponents. Howard Dean is a miserably insecure man. He hasn't produced one logical solution to address our current problems with big government, bureaucracy and political grid-lock.

He would have been better suited introducing a SOLUTION to the mad cow issue. Instead, he likes to spew insults.

Any reputable candidate would be too busy problem solving to even worry about his or her opponent.

the cow appears to have been born prior to the restrictions on brain and spinal cord material being included in the feed mentioned previously.
this ban was implemented in 1997 simultaneously by both the united states and canada.
it is likely then that is where and when the disease was contracted.
it is possible however, that feed was used in contravention of this ban, either in canada or the u.s.

labelling either canada or the u.s. as 'mad cow country' is fruitless and wrong. this is a north american problem.

There is a great steakhouse in Beaumont that I frequented while I was there for a stay in the military.

Craving beef....
