Dead Cows, Gov't Reparation, and the Cost to US Taxpayers
Story Idea; I have read of at least one story where a cattle rancher had to euthanise his whole herd of over 6,000 cows due to bovine TB,of course, the USDA "repaired" the cattlemens losses at fair market value (approx $1,200 per cow) and of course that got me to wondering, just how much are the cattlemens sick & dead cows costing the taxpayers of America? The numbers would be staggering. Do I feel a FOIL request to the USDA coming on?
