I assume the ban the USDA just put on Downer Cows being included in the meat supply, includes those that have broken a leg or something.. I dont like the thought of sick cows in the meat supply, but I guess what they suffer from would be significant. I had a yearling last year that broken his leg.. so I did the obvious thing.. I put him in "my freezer" in nice little white packages.. I would have preferred to here the USDA say.. when we suspect an animal of illness and we decide to test for whatever.. we will NOT include the meat from the animal in the world's meat supply UNTIL we know what we are dealing with. Why is it the cart always seems to have to pull the horse? Jeez....
