Default Canada Finds Another Mad Cow

Read about it he

http://winnipegsun.com/News/Canada/2...3/5964651.html

Although Canada continues to find mad cows,
the U.S. has slashed its testing program
from 759,000 animals tested during 2004-2006,
to about 40,000 per year since then.

http://www.aphis.usda.gov/publicatio...ongoing_vs.pdf

The USDA presently refuses to allow private
companies to test for BSE in their cattle,
because that would reveal the true extent
of the epidemic in U.S. herds.

Or more likely they want to have quality control over the lab testing,
and that every test performed is by an unbiased lab?

No, they refuse to allow it because the beef lobbyists work for large
producers, and it would cut into their profits to have to test, and the
smaller boutique ranchers, the ones who want to do testing, would be
more price competitive. It's about small percentage differences in
profitability, not widespread BSE infection.

I, on the other hand, don't consider that more likely.

me either. the USDA is owned by the big agribusinesses.
every one of the top department heads is from the
agribusiness industry. the only thing our USDA "watchdogs"
are watching is the big agribiz's bottom line. they won't
allow every animal to be tested by the one farm, because
then consumers would start wondering why all farms don't do
that... the past 7 years has seen a >20% vacancy rate in
meat inspector positions. the government won't fund for
inspectors or inspecting. if you seriously think that meat
you buy in big box grpcery has been inspected, well, chances
are better that it wasn't.
