Re: E-M:/ Fwd: Mad Cow

Enviro-Mich message from Ishgooda <ishgooda@voyager.net>


Proposed rules to limit the use of ruminant derived meat and bone meal in ruminant
feeds (similar to the British SBO) were published in the January 3, 1997 Federal
Register (Volume 62, Number 2, Page 551-583). Such rules would limit potential
spread of prion disease in US cattle from any spontaneous cases or from species in
the US which are known to have prion diseases (deer, elk, mink). 
The US has had the same practice as Great Britain in that they have fed (continue?) to feed animal  parts to animals in their feed.  This is what transmitted BSE in the UK.
