i remember when we were in europe in the fall of 2001 . at that time the mad cow disease was considered a real problem in europe , so many restaurants advertised "beef from united states of america" - what a shock to learn not long thereafter that we had a problem in north-america too .

I did a double take when I saw the name of the topic and the username of the guy who started it.

Those are funny, but not as funny as your hat. I didn't know Rosie the Riveter was a Green bay fan.

I have no problem with cloned cows. Take a cow that produces tender sirloin and make a million copies of it. No more searching the supermarket shelves for lean beef. Simply take the one "Cloned from Top Quality Sirloin". It will be glorious!

vinny : i'm not the kind of hamburger that's easy to digest - the meat is getting kind 'a tough and stringy :wink: .
but i won't give you mad cow disease - i hope .
i did indulge in local austrian 'meat specialities' while visiting vienna -
such as : liver , blood-sausages and 'beuschel' (sort of an austrian 'haggis' Shocked ).
still feeling o.k. - at the moment .

'beuschel' - to be enjoyed with a cool beer Rolling Eyes

vinny :
it's an austrian version of 'chili con carne' - just not as spicy .
look at the similarities - but if you opt for the austrian beer , you can't go wrong .

Cloning will NOT reduce the risk of mad cow disease.

The cause of mad cow disease is raw protien in diets, ie meat and or bone meal fed to growing cows.

But if you're going to spend all that money cloning an animal then you will not feed it a **** diet, thus, the risk of mad cow disease is reduced.

cloning has to be cheaper than semen production and AI otherwise there is no net gain in profit for multinationals.

Technically mad-cow (aka BSE) is caused by a prion. A prion is disease-causing agent that is neither bacterial nor fungal nor viral and contains no genetic material.
Yes, prions are passed on by the ingesting of infected tissue when cannibalism is allowed in the feed lot and when humans eat the tissue of an infected animal. Apparently they have found a way to produce prion free cows with cloning, thus the cows cannot get BSE:
