That's why I only eat bison. We need to get rid of all the cattle in the US and start a national bison herd. We can let them roam free in their natural range in the prairie states. It'll be good for us and good for the environment.

The topic is mad cow disease, and whether our beef supply is contaminated.

I'm simply pointing out that there IS an alternative to beef, which is natural (rather than imported), better for you (less fat & cholesterol), and better for the environment.

Go ahead and gobble down your mad cow burgers. Enjoy becoming a twitching vegetable confined to a hospital bed the rest of your life. Of course I imagine you'll want the taxpayers to take care of your rotting corpse for the rest of your life.......

It's worth paying the extra price to know your food is safe to eat. That's why I also refuse to buy eggs from the store; if I don't get enough from my hens, I'll buy from another local farmer. Once you've had fresh eggs, you'll never go back to pale sickly looking store bought ones. Yolks are supposed to be a bright orangish-yellow color. Same goes for the flesh of the chickens you find in most supermarkets.

If at all possible, raise your own poultry for meat & eggs. It's not difficult nor that expensive.

There were once 60 MILLION bison roaming North America. By 1893 there were between 400-800 left. Thanks to conservation effort in conjunction with Native American tribes, there numbers have returned to approx 600,000.

Is there really a difference in the taste of the eggs. I was thinking about doing it because my local government said I can't and I don't like people telling me what to do. It was never a problem before but they adopted a unified national code because they were too cheap and lazy to write their own which included a prohibition against people having their own livestock.

Definitely. Even the color of the yolk is orange instead of yellow.

In most places less than 5 chickens isn't considered livestock, but rather pets. Seriously, check it out. If nothing else, challenge your local government. If that fails, find a local farmer with chickens; they almost always have extra they're willing to sell.

Trust me, once you've had real eggs, you'll never buy from a grocery store again.

Btw, don't get a rooster. You don't need them for eggs, and they tend to be a little noisy. 3 hens is more than enough to supply all the eggs for a family of 4.
