A long-term inspector at a large beef operation in Nebraska: "Dragging cattle with a chain and forklift is standard practice at the plant. And that's even after the forklift operator rolled over and crushed the head of one downer [animal too sick, weak and/or injured to stand] while dragging another." (via The Bloody Dairy Industry on Facebook)
Misinformation. Mastitis is an UDDER infection, not a TEAT infection. The UDDER is the inside/outside area in which the milk is stored, the TEAT is the protrusion that then lets the milk down and out. This is a picture of a TEAT WITH SORES, cows get them like humans get cold sores. Cows being treated for mastitis ARE NOT PUT IN WITH THE GENERAL MILK SUPPLY. They are kept seperate. Seriously people, check your facts.
This was in my microbiology book. Funny how information is out there, but government takes no action. Antibiotic resistance is no joke. We've seen it plenty of times before and this is asking for trouble
