Studying the relationship of mad cow disease and its detrimental effect on U.S. beef exports & the corrisponding rise in demand for horsemeat for human consumption abroad, and also addressing the problematic issue of restoring world confidence in the safety of American Beef in hopes of off-setting the foreign demand for horses as a substitute for meat cows.
Horses Dont Get Mad Cow Disease - at least, that is the popular belief.
Bearing in mind that other countries test EVERY COW for mad cow disease while the U.S. tests only 1 in 1,0000, do you think the USDA is doing all it can to insure that U.S. beef is safe for human consumption?
Do you think there are cases of mad cow in the USA today that are going undetected or unreported by the farmers or the USDA?
