Actually, my husband worked for a beef packing plant in west Texas back in the 1990s. He refuses to eat at McDonalds to this day.
He said that Tuesday was McDonald's beef day, and on that day, the most sickly, ancient, tired, and mangy looking cows were delivered to the plant
especially for McDonald's hamburgers. He said the cows were so pathetic, they were forced with cattle prods to walk into the plant where they would
be slaughtered. They didn't have the energy to get up the ramp by themselves.
The other days of the week, the cows were somewhat healthier looking, but McDonald's bought the cheapest, most sorriest looking cows they could get
that were still technically breathing.
Once he told me that, I vowed never to eat at McDonald's again, and I haven't. 100% American beef? Yes, technically that is correct. They were
American, they were cattle, and they were still drawing breath. Beyond that, if they dropped dead on the prairie, I doubt even the coyotes would eat
