FYI - I'm resending this because it may have been lost during the 4-day
down time. I'm wondering if anyone else caught the NPR report last week on
a study of e. coli (the kind that usually sickens humans when they eat
contaminated meat). A study shows that grain-fed cattle had stomachs full
of e. coli, whereas grass-fed had virtually none. Cattle finished in
feedlots quickly acquired e. coli populations. Perhaps this is of interest
to those of you raising range-fed beef. NPR sells transcripts. I think I
heard it on Morning Edition.
