So I have a few questions... maybe a rancher or Ag student/professor can help me out here with some possibilities.
1. How is it that livestock is being given too much anti-biotics? Animals are animals, they get sick, sometimes sure, they get into things, and
accidents happen. What exactly would require a whole herd to be injected or fed antibiotics that frequently that pathogens and germs would build up a
tolerance? A few two or three, out of the lot I can understand, wounds get infected, but by the mass and that frequent?
2. Is it instead possible that the stock was dairy that had infected teats which were then sold for slaughter? They have to be looking at this on
several products or at least not ruling out meats and possibly milk and maybe butter and cheese.
3. I thought the EU was really big on naturally producing much of their product, wouldn't they be against high dosing of stock as much as they are
against GMO? If that's true, then why the problem with ecoli due to over use of anti biotics?
4. If this new strain of ecoli possibly came or was transmitted through manure, is the manure not being aged or cooked from any sort of heat?
Fertilizer gets pretty hot in piles, especially in the sun, Im wondering how those germs survive in 100-140 degree temperatures...
