Buy American beef.

Postby Greg_Cornish » Fri Feb 06, 2009 12:39 pm

THIS IS A  GOOD MAN WHO TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE THIS AND EVEN SIGN HIS NAME 
AND  CONTACT, SO PLEASE READ:

I'm sure those  of you who aren't in the cattle business don't understand the 
issues here.  But to those of us whose living depends on the cattle market, 
selling  Cattle, raising the best beef possible... This is  frustrating.

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 impact them, but if we pass this  around maybe there will be an impact  felt.

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 now by  eating at good old McDonald's.

American ranchers raise the  highest quality beef in the world and this is 
what Americans deserve to  eat. Not beef from countries where quality is loosely 
controlled.  Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of McDonald's until they see 
the  light.
I'm sorry but everything is not  always about the bottom line, and when it 
comes to jeopardizing my  family's health, that is where I draw the  line.

I am sending this note to about  thirty people. If each of you send it to at 
least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)  ...and those 300 send it to at least ten more 
(300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and  so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth 
level of people, we will  have reached over THREE MILLION  consumers!

I'll bet you didn't think you and  I had that much potential, did you? Acting 
together we can make a big  difference. If this makes sense to you, please 
pass  this message  on.

This was on another forum and somebody snoped it and it came back as false.
