Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Nobody knows where the cow came from
Well, here in Europe, since BSE, I think, we have a system that every new born cow is chipped and you can follow her life from birth til supermarket shelf. I have no idea if that helps, but we feel better now *g*.
Actually in the US there isn't such a system, neither is there one in Canada. It might have to do with the masses. I can imagine US beef need is a tad higher than the German numbers, so it might be that it's simply too much to regulate.
On the other hand it would help a lot if one knew exactly where this cow came from and where her beef was sold.
Well, I just buy two kinds of beef, either German (where I can read nearly everything about the cow on the package) or British (they already killed all Cows and started with healthy ones some years ago, so chances are good with that). American Beef will be on my personal Boycott list, but not for political reasons (as I keep saying, private-boycotting is politically bullshit) just to feel better.
