OK, let's throw PC out the window and call a spade a dairy cow. Nearly all of the market killing "disclosures" over the past 10 years have not involved producers who make their living producing beef. Whether they are the BSE "cow that stole Christmas" in 2003 or the more recent videos of the horrible practices used on downer cows at slaughter plants, they have mostly come from cull dairy cows. Perhaps some increased pressure on that segment of the industry would help keep the real beef industry from suffering at the hands of those for whom beef is a by-product.
