A Farmers View - Ag Perspectives From A Livestock Farmer

Posted 5/6/2012 8:59pm by Steve.

I would like to inform you a little bit about the BSE or "MAD COW DISEASE" that's been in the news lately. The fact that they found this cow at a rendering plant and not in a pet or human food chain shows that the safeguards are working and that the U.S. food supply is safe. It was an older cull dairy cow and not a beef cow who was going to be rendered into non-food products. The USDA thinks she had a genetic mutation and didn't get it from eating other animals as her feed ! Actually since 1997 there have been no ruminant meat or blood products allowed to be fed to cattle anyway, and with our Natural program we never feed animal products to any of our livestock anyway. 

Our livestock are processed at a USDA inspected facility to insure you that your meat is safe and wholesome. All the safeguards of inspection and the Natural Feeding programs help lessen any risk with our products and we aim to keep it that way. We take your safety and our own family's safety seriously and always strive to maintain the highest quality we can. Another reason to get to know the farmers who raise your food ! Short,sweet and to the point tonight ! Take care till next time and we will see you soon. Thanks for your business and support. Steve
