Corn is good fish bait.

It CAN make them sick or even kill them...

from: http://www.johnrobbins.info/blog/grass-fed-beef/

"Cows, sheep, and other grazing animals are endowed with the ability to convert grasses, which those of us who possess only one stomach cannot digest, into food that we can digest. They can do this because they are ruminants, which is to say that they possess a rumen, a 45 or so gallon (in the case of cows) fermentation tank in which resident bacteria convert cellulose into protein and fats.

Switching a cow from grass to grain is so disturbing to the animal’s digestive system that it can kill the animal if not done gradually and if the animal is not continually fed antibiotics. These animals are designed to forage, but we make them eat grain, primarily corn, in order to make them as fat as possible as fast as possible."



I don't trust that blog.

Farmers have been grass/grain feeding here for a hundred years without issue.

The issues in the states could be the breed of cow, or the use of Monsanto growth hormones which are banned in Canada.

And he's counting corn as a grain (see the last sentence).

As I recall, Monsanto's growth hormone rBGH is banned in most 1st world countries (except in the US) and that is what the antibiotics are used for as their white cells become full of puss which can infect the meat and the milk.

Or you could you just get over what's cruel to the cow by not eating meat.

The U.S., due to it's poor transportation systems, corporate control of government, and crumbling infrastructure, is a 2nd world country quickling striving for 3rd world status.

Race to the bottom. You got some fucking stupid neighbors Slob. The pollacks have NOTHING on Americans when it comes to outright folly and stupidity.

Americans are fast becoming the butt of all stupid jokes.

i.e.

How Many Stupid Americans Does It Take To Change A Lightbulb??

•Two will attempt to change the light bulb (put in a new lightbulb)
•Forty will file suit to stop the change of the light bulb
•Fifty will file suit for a wildlife study to change the light bulb
•Thirty will claim the light bulb works - someone just pulled the plug.
•Twenty will form a group to "Save The Old Lightbulb"
•Ten will claim it is a conspiracy - someone deliberately broke the lightbulb for financial gains
•One hundred politicians will pass new laws to regulate and control how the lightbulb is changed.
•Five hundred politicians will block the one hundred politicians, stating that the one hundred politicians only have higher political aspirations.
•Three hundred will claim THEY have the solution and propose thirty new, more expensive ways to eliminate the lightbulb that won't need any electricity.
•Ten politicians will devise new laws to fund the new, more expensive ways, to replace the lightbulb.
•Two politician's will block all attempts to change the lightbulb, because they are saving the world.
•Fifty environmental groups will block all attempts to change the lightbulb... unless billions are spent on their special interest projects.
•Twenty governors will try to get royalties from changing the lightbulb.
•Three quarters of the population just want the lightbulb changes - they are tired of walking into walls and stubbing their toes at night.
•One will claim THEY are the only one to have the solution, but it will cost billions of dollars.
•Three thousand claim changing the lightbulb will not work, because it will only burn out decades later, so why bother.
