Older Canadian Cattle Allowed in the US

At the beginning of this month, the US border was opened to older Canadian cattle, lifting the ban on meat and cattle imports from Canada after a cow there tested positive for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), which has been linked to variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare and deadly nerve disease that has been blamed for more than 150 human deaths, mostly in Britain. The Montana Farmers Union believes that this is a risk not acceptable to consumers or to beef cattle ranchers throughout the United States.

When we exploit God's animals we cause misery to them and to us.

Showing compassion to God's animals benefits our health and also our spiritual growth, since we reflect God's love for Creation.
