This is the professor who wrote the piece below: David W. Forrest, Ph.D., PAS, Dipl. ACAP Department of Animal Science Texas A&M University I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle business don't understand the issues here. But to those of us who who's living depends on the cattle market, selling cattle, raising the best beef possible... this is frustrating. As far as my family, we don't eat at McDonald's much (Subway is our choice of fast food), but this will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink. The original message is from the Texas Cattle Feeders Association. American cattle producers are very passionate about this. McDonald's claims that there is not enough beef in the USA to support their restaurants. Well, we know that is not so. Our opinion is they are looking to save money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that the people of the USA are the ones who made McDonald's successful in the first place, but we are not good enough to provide beef. We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which I am sure does not make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an impact felt. Please pass it on. Just to add a note, all Americans that sell cows at a livestock auction barn had to sign a paper stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cows any part of another cow. South Americans are not required to do this as of yet. McDonald's has announced that they are going to start importing much of their beef from South America . The problem is that South Americans aren't under the same regulations as American beef producers, and the regulations they have are loosely controlled. They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been banned here at home because of residues found in the beef. They can also use various hormones and growth regulators that we can't. The American public needs to be aware of this problem and that they may be putting themselves at risk from..

I think that's a bunch of Bull :)The only reason to buy beef in SA and elsewhere is to save a buck. Everything is being outsourced for a dollar. It also puts the American public at risk! Guess I'll have to cook burgers at home. Can I have the other side, sent to my house.

I like Burger King better anyway, unfortunately since McD's changed their fries(the only thing I liked about them) they lost my business. But my Burger King went out of business. So can you please send a side of beef to my work? TY
