Beef, will we still be able to eat it for dinner?
Now there is a controversy on the condition of the cow before it is slaughtered for human consumption. The debate is if it is safe to slaughter a cow for human consumption if the cow was injured previous to death. Before the debate, it was not allowed. Many consumer groups are opposed to the ratification of injured cows passing inspections. With these kinds of pressures, what kinds of incentives will these leave ranchers to continue ranching? I think that there is too much of a demand in beef, and these frivolous debates will hold little pressure. Last time there was a mad cow scare few people stopped eating beef. What are your thoughts on the matter?
